The PSA is here for you. Our paid time quarterly meetings are a chance for you to talk about the issues you face and the changes you want to see at the State Library. These are challenging times for the public service and bolstering union power is more important than ever. Come along and have your say!
The next quarterly meeting will be held this Wednesday:
Date: Wednesday, 24 May 2017
Location: Unaipon Room, Level 1
The subsequent quarterly meeting will be held on 23 August and the final meeting for the year will be on 22 November. Locations and times will be the same.
All members are advised these meetings are paid time and should be recorded as such on your timesheets.
PSA activity update
Your local workplace committee, in conjunction with your local Organiser, Harry Wall, and your Industrial Officer, Kerrie Butson, has been working hard to fight for your rights at the State Library. We have been resolving collective issues at the quarterly Joint Consultative Committees. We also harnessed worker power to get the underpayment of superannuation matters resolved within 24 hours of it being brought to our attention.
Members’ feedback has been heard and conciliation over the restructures in the Reading Room and in the Bulk Loans section is ongoing with management. Finally, the PSA has been bargaining your next pay rise.
An update on these negotiations and the ramifications of the restructures will be provided at the quarterly meeting on Wednesday.
