Crown Solicitor’s Office Information bulletin

Crown Solicitor’s office Information bulletin – March 2016 (PDF version)

At a recent members’ meeting at the CSO, members raised a number of issues of concern in the workplace. Most issues raised, including the reactivation of the Work Health and Safety Committee and the nomination of HSRs, will be presented by your delegates as agenda items on the Joint Consultative Committee (JCC).

It was also agreed it would be useful for members to have an Information Bulletin on the availability of PSA Training and the PSA’s Member Support Centre (MSC).

PSA training courses

Under your Award, you are entitled to Trade Union Training Leave and members can access 12 union training days within a two-year period. Information about the courses can be found on the PSA website. Nominations for training can be submitted online HERE

Member Support Centre

Members are reminded the PSA offers support through a number of avenues. It is always desirable to resolve workplace and individual issues/concerns at the local level. In many instances delegates can provide advice and support in workplace matters.

However, if you have followed all the agency guidelines for resolving workplace issues without success, you should register the issue with the Member Support Centre (MSC) on 1300 772 679. Member Advocates will provide advice and assistance, as required. Registering your issue with the MSC is the first step in the process of attempting to satisfactorily and fairly resolve your issue if all other attempts have failed.

What can you do?

  • Give a copy of this bulletin to your colleagues
  • Print out this bulletin and put it up on your notice board
  • Ask a colleague to join the PSA
  • Get involved as your area contact
  • Set up work place members’ committees with regular scheduled meetings.
