Workers compensation survey

Members are encouraged to participate in the workers compensation survey currently being undertaken by WorkCover NSW.

Participants are asked to share their opinions about the customer service they received from their insurer and WorkCover, their interactions with medical providers, the quality of the information they received about their rights and obligations, their overall satisfaction with the claims process and what they think can be done better.

The results of the survey will contribute to the future direction of the scheme and its operations.

Members can complete the survey anonymously HERE

The survey closes on 3 July.

Tax statements

The PSA 2014-2015 tax statements will be posted to members by mid July 2015.

We know this is important to members and are currently focusing on the preparation.

Your patience is appreciated.

The PSA has issued a media release condemning the Baird Government’s plan to waste billions of dollars on building new private jails when an existing government run facility at Grafton sits virtually empty.

PSA General Secretary Anne Gardiner said the Government announcement about private gaol beds is not about solving the long-standing overcrowding problem in prisons.
