Historic first for PSA - Public Service Association

Historic first for PSA

Dear Members

I am pleased to announce an historic first, with PSA management having reached agreement on a single enterprise agreement for all PSA staff.

Under the Fair Work Act 2009, all private sector employees, including PSA staff, were moved from the state industrial relations system to the federal system.

Since that time, industrial staff in the PSA have not had a legally enforceable agreement covering their wages and conditions.

In order to ensure that all PSA staff had equal industrial protections, I commenced negotiations with the three internal PSA unions to work on a single agreement.

Given the ambitious nature of this undertaking, it was not surprising that some difficulties were encountered in bringing all parties to agreement.

However, good will from both PSA staff and management resulted in 95% of staff voting for the agreement.

Yesterday, the parties were advised by Fair Work that the PSA Staff Enterprise Agreement 2016 had been approved and will take effect from 24 May  2016.

You can view the agreement HERE.

Yours in Unity

Anne Gardiner

PSA General Secretary
