NSW Trustee and Guardian – 2017 & beyond – business plan

Trustee and Guardian bulletin – 2017 and beyond – business plan – 14 October 2017 (PDF version)

On 13 October 2015, the Business Plan for NSW Trustee & Guardian (NSWTAG) was presented to staff by the CEO, Imelda Dodds.

The Business Plan presents a devastating picture for PSA members and the people of NSW with the announcement including:

  • The loss of 162 full time positions;
  • The closure of eleven (11) branch offices –

Broken Hill
Reduced services at Lismore, Wollongong and Sydney offices.

  • The removal of General Scale and 1/2 Grade positions from the establishment of NSWTAG.


Despite repeated requests by the PSA and your delegates for management to provide substantial proposals and engage in transparent consultation, this was ignored. Consultation was purely superficial. Management continually blocked requests for a firm proposal. There was no opportunity provided for members to consider and respond to the Business Plan.

Where to now?

The PSA is meeting with management on 16 October. In the meantime, 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?
