The PSA and your delegates met with Chris D’Aeth (Executive Director and Principal Registrar at Supreme Court of NSW) on 27 May for the quarterly Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) meeting, to discuss member issues within the Supreme Court, Industrial Relations Commission and Land and Environment Court.
The employer’s response to COVID-19 was raised. Following this discussion, the PSA can confirm that within the Supreme Court:
- Sneeze Guards will be installed at the counters at the Supreme Court
- Signage will be added throughout the Supreme Court
- Court sitting will be staggered to avoid lift overcrowding
- Thermal scanning is being implemented (beginning mid-June).
Working from home was also raised, and Mr D’Aeth confirmed that the Government’s policy, “if not, why not”, is still in force. If a member has suitable work that can be done from home, days working from home should be able to be arranged. If members have been denied working-from-home arrangements, or are having trouble securing working-from-home arrangements, they should contact the PSA Member Support Centre on 1300 772 679.
The PSA is looking for a delegate from the Land Environment Court. Issues can only be effectively raised and resolved if we have delegates from each court house. If you wish to have your voice heard, please contact your PSA organiser.
