After members’ meetings were held in Goulburn Street Sydney; Pitt Street Sydney; Hurstville and Valentine Avenue, Parramatta regarding the relocation to Parramatta Square, members’ concerns were collated and provided to the Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DoPIE) Management, requesting a meeting to address members’ concerns.
The meeting was convened on Thursday 29 August 2019 with DoPIE Senior Management and Parramatta Square Project Manager. The PSA was represented by your delegates and PSA officials. At this meeting, the PSA raised members’ issues and subsequently received the following letter with responses to your questions HERE.
Due to the level of concern from members around the move to Parramatta Square and the impact on members and their families, it was agreed fortnightly meetings would be an appropriate way to discuss members’ ongoing concerns. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Thursday 26 September 2019.
Management have advised all Line Managers are to engage in one-on-one conversations with affected DoPIE staff to discuss the impact the relocation to Parramatta Square will have on members.
The PSA urges all members to engage in this process. This is your chance as individuals to discuss the impact whether negative or positive.
The PSA understands that members still have many concerns, questions and ideas and we want to hear them. The best person to talk to is your local delegate.
