The PSA is holding a workshop for Service NSW members at PSA House on 6 May 2016 between 10.00am and 4.30pm. The workshop is for any Service NSW member who wants to have a say, and contribute to maintaining and improving good work-life conditions in Service NSW. PSA members are entitled to 12 days’ special leave with pay to attend training courses such as this.

The course will cover: information about how your union works and what we can achieve together; issues at work; the award-negotiation process; discussion around the setting up of a committee to represent members; consultation and negotiation processes.

It has been identified through onsite visits and other member communication, that many permanent part-time staff consistently work more than their substantive 20 hours.

Does this affect you?

The PSA would like to hear from all affected Service NSW staff. The PSA needs to be able collate this information so it can be addressed with the Department.

Service NSW should recognise the needs of the business and value its employees. By completing this survey, it will give the PSA the evidence to campaign for the conversion of part-time hours to permanent full-time hours if the employee wishes to do so after meeting certain criteria.

A permanent full-time position will give our members more job security and stability in the workforce.

Award negotiations

Award meetings are continuing between the PSA Bargaining Team and Service NSW to negotiate your Service NSW Award. This Award covers all your conditions and entitlements as a Service NSW employee.

The PSA will continue to update the members on the outcomes and progress of the meetings.
