The PSA held a delegate teleconference on Tuesday, 15 May 2018 to discuss the Organisational Transformation and the key issues tabled included the following:

  • The current payment of Field Allowance
  • The proposed location of roles within NSW SES
  • The release of role descriptions
  • The accommodation for Metropolitan with concerns raised of future location.
