Pillar sale update

Pillar sale update – December 2016 (PDF version)

The PSA (CPSU) has been informed that the successful bidder in the State Government’s tender process for the sale of Pillar is Mercer.

Now that the outcome of the sale has been announced, the PSA appreciates that some members will have concerns, some of which have been raised with us and addressed below:

Q. Can I still stay with the PSA (CPSU)?
A. Yes, the PSA (CPSU) still has coverage of Pillar.

Q. How long will I be covered by the PSA (CPSU)?
A. Under the CPSU’s rules, the PSA (CPSU) continues to have coverage as Pillar supports superannuation funds that provide benefits to our members.

Q. Can new employees join the union?
A. Yes, new employees are welcome to join the PSA (CPSU). In fact, we encourage you to promote your union to new employees.

The PSA (CPSU), along with your delegates, will meet with Mercer early in the New Year. We will report back to you on the results of that meeting.

There will be a Joint Consultative Committee meeting probably on 19 January 2017. We are still waiting for confirmation of the date but once confirmed, we would look to having a member meeting following the JCC to advise you further. A notification will be sent out closer to the time.

In the meantime, please send any further questions you have to

Thank you and have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.

As we work our way through the results of the sale of Pillar, it is important that you have a say and your voice is heard. You can support the work of the PSA (CPSU) and your local delegates by asking your colleagues to join the PSA (CPSU).

Please forward this to your colleagues so that they know their rights, and encourage them to JOIN the PSA (CPSU)
