Like unions, the Voice gives Aboriginal people a better say in issues that affect them.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have lived in Australia for 65,000 years. They have asked for the Voice to improve their lives. We, as union members, have to listen to them.

The PSA CPSU NSW’s advisory bodies, such as our Departmental Committees, Vocational Branches and our very own Aboriginal Council work with your union’s leadership, not against it. The Voice will work the same way with our Parliament; a Yes vote will create an advisory body that will work with the Federal and State Governments to better deliver services and assistance to Aboriginal people.

It is an advisory body and will not be making any laws.

For more than a century, Australia’s proud union movement has been at the vanguard of social issues in our country. We have led the way in women’s suffrage and rights at work, the 1967 referendum, the Green Bans and marriage equality. By saying Yes, union members will continue this proud tradition of making Australia a fairer country for all.
