The CPSU is the union for all Professional Staff

Consider joining your union, the Community & Public Sector Union (CPSU), the largest union nationwide representing professional staff (131,500 members across Australia).

The CPSU represents professional staff (non-academic) and ONLY professional staff.

The CPSU is also the only union that in 2017/8 will continue to negotiate for a SEPARATE Enterprise Agreement for professional staff

Why am I being asked to Join NOW

In the lead up to the next Enterprise Agreement negotiations which expires 2018 it is vital you become involved and have your say regarding:

  • a separate Enterprise Agreement taking into account the interests of professional staff only
  • the maintenance and improvement of salaries and conditions negotiated specifically to meet the needs of professional staff
  • more secure forms of employment rather than casual or fixed term contracts.

Take advantage of the benefits that membership provides you with:

  • union membership that builds power in the workplace and provides workers with the opportunity to positively influence change within their workplace and organisation
  • a dedicated Member Support Centre to assist members with enquiries
  • Journey Personal Accident Insurance (travelling to and from work which is no longer covered by Workers Compensation)
  • low fees starting from $7 a fortnight, that is tax deductible and provides great value for money
  • free advice and support for industrial and workers compensation matters
  • Value-Added Member Services that include Personal Injury Insurance; Provident Fund and member only offers from Sydney Credit Union (SCU). We work in conjunction with the Workers Health Centre for injured workers and you can access one free consultation with W G McNally Jones Staff Lawyers on any non-industrial matter.
