International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day Rally on March 7 – Sydney Event
The PSA CPSU NSW with our sisters from other Unions will partner for this rally with the Sydney International Women’s day committee, a chapter of Women’s March, (a collective organisation from the US) that have reached out to co-host. There are many other organisations and women attending. All women are welcome, so bring your friends and supporters. This is expected to have upwards of 10,000 women from across Sydney and regional areas attend.
2020 is also a celebration of 90 years of Women’s Council at the PSA CPSU NSW and we are proud of our industrial achievements over these years. From Equal Pay cases, Flexible work, Parental leave, Lactation breaks to Family and Domestic Violence Leave.
We have a voice and are proud of our achievements. Come and make your presence felt at this event. Join with your union to celebrate International Women’s Day 2020.

Where: Hyde Park North (at the Archibald Fountain)
Where to: The march will leave from Hyde Park North and end at Belmore Park (north of Central Station)

For our members in their workplaces:
- We are asking you, to hold up the Purple PSA CPSU Women logo HERE with your workplace written in the white/blank space under the logo. The more the better! Take selfies and send them into the PSA CPSU NSW .
- Display the “Sydney IWD March” poster wherever you can. HERE
If you can hold a morning tea, this would be a good time to take some shots for IWD 2020.
Speak with your delegate or organiser if you are unsure about your workplaces rights.
