The PSA/CPSU NSW has recently written to The Benevolent Society (TBS) regarding significant issues members have raised with us in relation to various operation protocols of TBS including:
The PSA/CPSU NSW has previously written to TBS requesting a meeting to discuss consultative arrangements and ramifications that the transfer of FACS (ADHC) clinical services has had for those employees which our union represents. TBS has declined to meet with the PSA/CPSU NSW.
Your union has once again advised TBS of our availability anytime to meet in order to discuss working arrangements.
The CPSU NSW/PSA Fair Work Commission application for coverage as an employee organisation under copied state instruments (pursuant to section 768BB of the Fair Work Act 2009) (‘the FWC proceedings’).
As previously advised, this matter has been listed for hearing on Friday 15 December 2017 via video link.
We filed and served our evidence and TBS and the Health Services Union have now both served their evidence in relation to the FWC proceedings. In short, both maintain their opposition to union coverage by the CPSU NSW.
We are preparing further evidence in reply which will be filed and served by Friday 10 November 2017.
We will continue to be your union and to fight for your rights and entitlements. Now more than ever it is important to make sure all staff in your branch are members of the CPSU NSW/PSA.
