Election of workplace delegate

In accordance with PSA Rule 30 (e) (i), a meeting of PSA members in HNSW and LAHC in the Newcastle and Hunter District was held on Wednesday, 25 November 2015 to elect a workplace delegate.

Congratulations to Lynelda Rowe, who was elected unanimously.

Members have signalled their faith in her ability to promote their best interests in the workplace and to ensure their issues are brought forward.

Lynelda is currently based in the HNSW Office at 309 Charlestown Road, Charlestown.

Among other aspects of her role, Lynelda represents PSA members at the quarterly FACS District Joint Consultative Committee convened by the FACS District Director, Marie New. Members wishing to raise issues of broad concern at the JCC should contact Lynelda at

Member Support Centre

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

However, if you have followed all the Departmental guidelines for resolving workplace issues without success, you should register the issue with the PSA’s 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.

New social housing policy

Recent announcements by the NSW Government about Future Directions for Social Housing will have implications for our members.

We are keen to hear from you about the ways your work practices and conditions are being affected, and how you want the PSA to respond to the changes.

If you would like a PSA Organiser to hold a meeting in your workplace, discuss this with your colleagues and email your contact details and office location to
