CPSU NSW delegates are the day-to-day face of the union in the workplace. Delegates have a crucial role to play in the union.
Members look to delegates as workplace leaders on issues that matter to them.
Without delegates, the CPSU NSW would not be able to function.
The role of a CPSU NSW delegate is to:
To be available to assist members and hear their views
Actively protect and advance the interests of members
Be active in the workplace and promote the work of the PSA
Delegates are part of much larger team of delegates across the disability sector and the CPSU NSW/PSA. Delegates are supported and mentored by CPSU NSW/PSA industrial staff, and receive professional training by the union to assist in their role.
Currently there are CPSU delegates vacancies for the Australian Unity Delegates Council. There is one vacancy for the Central West/North West Regions, one vacancy for the Hunter Regions and one vacancy the South East and South West Regions. The role of the Delegates Council is to:
Enquire into, consider and report to and advise the Union upon matters of concern to its members,
provide a strong and organised workplace union structure,
grow the Union and build workplace union power,
promote the principles of EEO, OH&S and welfare rights, of members,
negotiate, improve and protect members’ employment conditions,
represent members with issues affecting their employment,
advocate and campaign for the interests of the broader labour movement,
recruit members to the Union with the aim to achieve 100% density,
refer members to the various services provided by the Union,
advise the DISABILITY SECTOR DELEGATES’ COUNCIL OF NSW on the interests of members.
