Pay Increases

Pay Increase (pdf version)

The PSA has secured a new Salaries Award. New rates of pay for members covered by the state industrial relations system have increased by 2.5 per cent and take effect from the beginning of the first full pay period commencing on or after 1 July 2019.

This will mean an increase in your pay beginning Friday 12 July and processed on Thursday 25 July.

In line with this salary increase, your union fees have increased by no more than 40 cents a week.

Member Benefits

Go to our websites or  and ensure you take advantage of all the extra member benefits available to you.

  • Coles & Woolworths 5 per cent discounts
  • Union Shopper
  • Member Advantage
  • Journey Insurance
  • Provident fund
  • Personal Injury for you and just $11 cover for whole family

PSA/CPSU NSW membership pays for itself

For example, if you take advantage of the 5% discount at Coles/Woolworths and save $10 a week, that’s more than it cost to be a PSA/CPSU NSW member (after tax)
