Members have been asking if the Public Service Association (PSA) will still be the union when members are transferred to the private sector.
The answer is YES! The PSA will still have coverage of our members in ADHC.
This is the most crucial time for you as members to have protection and the PSA is here to do that. When speaking with your colleagues let them know they are protected by their union. If they aren’t PSA members,advise them this is the time to JOIN.
Once the two-year guarantee period is over, the PSA will be bargaining with the organisation you are working for, to put in place an agreement which is like an award in the state jurisdiction. In the federal jurisdiction there are modern awards and if you have a unionised workplace, we bargain to have an Enterprise Agreements. The PSA will FIGHT to continue with your current conditions of employment and better.
No matter what you hear, the Public Service Association is your Union.
