The PSA has been representing members at Liverpool Service NSW who have been denied access to longstanding special shift arrangements. Special shift arrangements have traditionally existed for part-time staff allowing them to manage things such as family and carers’ responsibilities, whilst still undertaking part-time paid employment. This flexibility allowing part-time employment and caring responsibilities is consistent with the NSW Premier’s “if not, why not?” approach to flexibility in the workplace.
Service NSW has on more than one occasion stated the handful of staff operating under these arrangements negatively impact upon other staff working at the centre. As Service NSW has put the reason for rejecting special shift arrangements back on to other staff, the PSA would like to test this statement, and understand how special shift arrangements may impact other staff at Liverpool.
As such the PSA has developed a short survey. All information received is strictly confidential and will remain anonymous, but extremely important in the PSA understanding the views of staff. The survey is open to both members and non-members, and all views are welcome, so please encourage as many staff as possible to fill in the short survey, available HERE.
