Thank you to all our members who have come in behind the Public Sector Needs a Pay Rise campaign.
This Wednesday 1 June 2022 from 12:00pm-12:30pm, your union invites you to attend a Public Service Commission (PSC) members’ meeting to discuss aspects of the campaign specific to you, as well as the resolution from Central Council.
Register to join the meeting HERE.
Why are we doing this?
In February we wrote to the NSW Government seeking a pay rise above inflation. However, we only received a paltry acknowledgement letter a month later.
The PSA/CPSUNSW kicked off The Public Sector Needs a Pay Rise campaign in March when Central Councilors and Delegates vowed to support and build this campaign.
We launched a petition that now has more than 11,000 signatures. Please sign the and circulate the petition, as more signatures will make our voice even louder!
Nearly 1000 members have written to their local Member of Parliament. Click HERE to send a letter to your MP to let them know the Public Sector Needs a Pay Rise.
Departmental Committees, Vocational Branches and members have been meeting across the state, building momentum and deliberating the next steps of the campaign.
In May inflation figures rose significantly to 5.1 per cent. Again your union wrote to the Premier in May, this time seeking a 5.2 per cent pay rise. That is a decent pay increase that keeps up with the rising cost of living.
Still the silence from the Premier is deafening. This is not good enough, now is the time to step up the campaign.
