University of Western Sydney listening meetings – September 2016 (PDF version)

Your enterprise agreement will soon be up for renegotiation and we want to hear what you have to say about it.

To kick-start the enterprise bargaining campaign, we will be holding Listening meetings across four WSU campuses on Thursday 8 September.

Listening meetings are designed so members can tell their union what is most important to them, and are a vital first step in negotiating a new enterprise agreement.

Whether you have concerns about pay, suggestions about conditions, or a vision for what you want your working life to look like, the PSA/CPSU wants to hear from you. Come to a Listening meeting and have your say to make a difference.
