The PSA/CPSU has consulted broadly with PSA/CPSU members across the University. The following is a summary of what members have reported is important to them, and which issues they wish to see improved or changed.
As always, PSA/CPSU Members will continue to have ongoing input into the negotiations conducted on their behalf, and will always have final say on what is agreed on each change as we progress, and when the draft Agreement is being finalised.
What is most important to keep felt by PSA/CPSU Members
What is most wanted to be changed felt by PSA/CPSU members
Just because members felt one or two issues were more important than others, does not mean they don’t care about those issues too!
Your Bargaining Team will report back to you on what happens each meeting, and will ask for your feedback & comments throughout the process. When decisions need to be made, your Bargaining Team will ask members to VOTE on changes before making an in principle agreement on your behalf.
Where there are any key issues that you feel strongly about, and which you would like to seek support from your fellow colleagues, please contact your Organiser!
Let us know what you think about these, if you agree with them or feel strongly about an issue that may not be included. Your Bargaining Team will do the best we can to be as inclusive of the diverse membership, so please let us know what you care about!
Members can contact the Members Support Centre for advice and support.
