Misinformation – 2017 & Beyond business plan

Misinformation – 2017 & Beyond business plan October 2015 (PDF version)

The PSA has received a lot of feedback from members distressed by misinformation circulated by management regarding the implications of the Business Plan announced yesterday.

In particular, it is being suggested that the PSA agreed to a number of changes. Members should be aware of the following:

  • The PSA strongly opposed NSWTAG’s Spill and Fill approach. The PSA fought for and won the right to direct appointment to positions where possible.
  • The PSA under NO circumstances agreed to the deletion of General Scale and Grade 1/2 positions.
  • The PSA does not agree with the assertion that General Scale and Grade 1/2 position holders be excluded from applying for any positions.

At the meeting held at the Parramatta Justice Precinct yesterday, Tuesday 13 October, members were specifically advised that General Scale and Grade 1/2 position holders should raise their concerns directly with the PSA through the Member Support Centre (MSC) and with their delegates. This will allow the PSA to advocate on their behalf during any further consultations with management.

Where to now?

Please register your concerns as soon as possible with the MSC: 1300 772 679 or with one of your delegates. In the meantime, as previously advised, members are asked to consider what action they want to take in response to Tuesday’s announcement. Please speak with your colleagues. Contact your delegates (listed below) and refer all enquiries regarding the “restructure” to management.

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.
