Thank you to those of you that have taken the opportunity to vote on this landmark deal, the input of members is vital and supports the work of the PSA. To ensure that members have a genuine say we have explained every element of the package, both good and bad, and have ensured members get a proper vote.
If you have not voted yet you have until 5pm to have your voices heard.
The PSA, its legal team and the Executive of the Schools DC looked carefully at the package we had negotiated and on balance this is a very good result.
Increases over three years of from 19 per cent to 35.8 per cent is an unprecedented outcome that we are happy to recommended to members to accept. If members vote to accept this package it will be a massive WIN not only for SAS Staff but for the PSA and for women in NSW.
The PSA is due to attend a hearing on 13 September where we are required to report back on the outcome of the vote so that the new Award can be finalised by the Commission.
