10 GOOD REASONS TO JOIN THE PSA
1. THE VOICE OF THE PUBLIC SECTOR
The Public Service Association of NSW (PSA) represents the workplace interests of tens of thousands of public servants who perform a range of essential services across NSW Government departments and agencies.
2. IMPROVED WAGES AND ENTITLEMENTS
Employers do not automatically hand over salary increases and better conditions. The PSA is constantly fighting for improved pay and entitlements for members along with job security, innovative workplace measures and rights at work.
3. SAFER WORKPLACES
Bullying, harassment, excessive workloads and physical hazards are all work health and safety issues the PSA can tackle by having a strong and united voice in the workplace. The PSA also fights to ensure workers have a fair compensation system in the event of an injury at work.
4. MEMBER BENEFITS
The PSA offers a range of non-industrial benefits: Union Shopper, low-cost banking and loans with Sydney Mutual Bank, a Provident Fund ($4,000 for beneficiaries), Journey and Personal Injury Insurance, and free initial legal advice for non-industrial matters (conditions apply).
Whether it be a discipline matter or you need support at work, your union is there when you need them.
6. UNION VALUES
Be a part of the union movement, a group of people all over the country working together to make Australia a better place for all working people.
7. ADVICE AND ADVOCACY
The PSA has a dedicated Member Support Centre and a team of experienced industrial advocates. Whether advice on entitlements or more complex issues is required, the PSA provides assistance and ensures members are treated fairly.
PSA members have access to free training on a range of topics including dealing with workplace bullying, role of the delegate, union campaigning and public speaking.
9. JOB PROTECTION
The PSA is a staunch supporter of and advocate for a well-resourced NSW public sector. That means standing up for its members, their jobs and the services they provide.
10. COLLECTIVE STRENGTH
Joining the union makes the PSA stronger. A united unionised workplace means a united voice. United we bargain, divided we beg. It’s that simple.
