PSA meeting – Call for agenda items

PSA meeting – Call for agenda items – October 2017 (PDF version)

Your next union meeting will be on 15 November 2017.

We want to make sure all members’ voices are heard and your union is representing your interests. This meeting will inform what issues we raise with management at the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC).

The purpose of a JCC is to establish a regular forum for issues and concerns across the ministry to be raised with management and addressed collaboratively.

Your delegates, along with industrial staff at the union, have worked hard over the past 12 months to consistently raise member concerns around collective workplace issues at the ministry JCC.

We want to hear from you

If you have something you would like to add to the agenda of the union meeting on 15 November, please contact your delegate or email us at by midday Tuesday 7 November 2017.

Agenda items can be raised anonymously and anything raised can be treated with strict confidentiality.

Your Ministry of Health delegates are:

Julie Westacott

John Bertacco

Peter Gilfedder
