Listening Meetings – Justice Precinct 10 September 2014

Your union conducted two meetings at the Justice Precinct on Wednesday 10 September 2014. Both meetings were well attended by people from a cross section of agencies under the Justice Department portfolio.

Thank you to all the participants at the meetings. You provided your union and your colleagues with valuable information on issues in your workplaces and provided ideas which are currently being collated for inclusion in the ongoing Defending Public Services campaign against job cuts, privatisation and threats to working conditions.

The clear message from participants in the listening meetings is that as a direct result of job cuts and staff freezes, excessive and unreasonable workloads, job insecurity and bullying and harassment issues are impacting seriously on public servants. These issues in turn impact on the public services provided to the community.

Your union recognises that it is essential that the members are provided with the tools to face these issues in the workplace.

Where to now?
While the listening meetings raised some important issues, they also clearly demonstrated the importance of an organised and active workplace. The next step in the process is to establish a workplace organising committee within the Justice Precinct.

The PSA proposes to hold an inaugural meeting in October at the Justice Precinct. We hope to identify training needs to enable members to be empowered in the workplace.
Your union, in conjunction with members, will propose to set a timetable for lunch and learn training sessions and quarterly meetings for your workplace organising committee.
