Welcome to the Public Service Association of NSW - Public Service Association

Welcome to the Public Service Association of NSW

The Public Service Association of NSW (PSA) represents 40,000 members, most of them public servants employed by the NSW State Government.

The PSA fights to secure and advance the pay and conditions of all non-teaching staff in NSW public schools, including School Learning Support Officers, School Administrative Officers, Aboriginal Education Officers , School Administrative Managers, Business Managers, General and Farm Assistants, School Psychologists and Student Support Officers.

The PSA has approximately 11,000 members in NSW public schools – our largest contingent amongst a membership of 40,000.

The PSA also represents members working in all NSW government departments, agencies and state-owned corporations, including:

  • Dept of Education (Support Staff & head office)
  • Family and Community Services
  • Justice
  • Health
  • Planning, Industry and Environment
  • Transport
  • Premier and Cabinet
  • Customer Service
  • Finance, Services and Innovations
  • Industry
  • Regional NSW
  • Treasury

The PSA is a major public union that works on behalf of fee-paying members state-wide, helping them in all aspects of their working lives. It provides support, expert advice and collective as well as individual representation with any difficulty that may be encountered in the workplace.

No Government, of any political persuasion, automatically offers to boost workers’ pay packets or conditions, but tens of thousands of PSA members working collectively can achieve significant outcomes, as we have done in the past.

In addition to better pay and conditions, PSA members also receive assistance with a range of other workplace issues including the protection of flexible working hours, bullying, worker’s compensation, disciplinary matters, women’s rights, work practices, and Workplace Health and Safety.

There are a wide range of member benefits that can easily save more than the cost of membership, including:

  • Savings on groceries (Coles, Woolworths, etc), clothing, electronics (The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi Apple), gym memberships, cheaper electricity and gas bills, home and personal loans and much more.
  • Journey insurance (up to 80% of your salary for 2 years)
  • Accident Insurance
  • Ambulance cover for members and their family
  • Union Shopper discounts
  • Cheaper banking, mortgages, loans and credit cards
  • PSA Provident Fund ($4000)
