The voice of court staff within your union, the PSA!

What is the Petty Sessions Officers Association (PSOA)?

The PSOA is the Advisory Group within the PSA that represents members working in Local Courts, Children’s Courts, the Coroner’s Court and District Courts. It consists of PSA delegates within Court Services across NSW. This year marks the 100th year of the PSOA.

The PSOA champions the invaluable work you do, and advocates for your working rights and conditions. The PSOA meets with Court Services management on a quarterly basis to raise industrial issues on behalf of members (Court Services Joint Consultative Committee).

Your PSOA delegates are:

Honorary Secretary – Jeffrey Walters, Wyong Court

Vice Presidents  

Veronica Antcliff, Scone Court

Danielle Beard, Forbes Court

Assistant Secretary – Sharyn Rowlands, Narrandera Court

Ordinary executive members

Gordon Roberts, Downing Centre

Stephen Wells, Tamworth Court

Would you like to become involved with your union and make a difference in your workplace? Becoming involved with the PSOA is the best way to advance the workplace issues that you care about and to improve your rights at work by building strength on the ground and supporting your fellow members.

The PSOA is looking for more members. Mentoring and training will be provided by PSA staff and delegates. All members are entitled to
12 days (every two years) of paid trade union leave to attend PSA training courses. Enrol online HERE.

Contact any of the PSOA delegates or your PSA staff if you are interested.

Upcoming court staff survey

The PSOA want to know the issues that you face in your roles and your workplaces. Keep an eye out for a survey that will be sent out in the near future. Members can also send feedback to any of the PSOA delegates or PSA staff.

Your PSA staff:

Organiser – Surabi Alauddin

Industrial officer – Andrew Boulton

Unity, Strength, Respect – united we bargain, divided we beg. The more members we have in Court Services, the stronger we become to advocate and fight for better working conditions, higher pay increases and increased job security. Encourage your colleagues to join the PSA online.
