SCU: Welcome to 2021

SCU Welcome – Jan 2021 (PDF version)

The CPSU NSW, the Professional Staff union, would like to welcome you back to work and into 2021. We would also like to remind you that if you have any concerns or issues, please don’t hesitate to call the Member Support Centre (MSC) on 1300 772 679 or contact a Delegate, whose details are below.

While we hope 2021 will be less chaotic than 2020, it is still likely to be a year of change, and so it’s more important than ever to be engaged with your union. That means attending meetings when possible, keeping your Delegates up to date with any changes or things that are occurring in your workplace, keeping an eye on your emails, and talking to your colleagues about the union. If you’re interested in getting even more involved, please don’t hesitate to contact CPSU NSW Senior Organiser Asren Pugh at .

COVID 19 continues to prevent a lot of challenges, and along with the current crisis in higher education, will continue to have effects into in 2021. This is especially true considering that bargaining will begin this year at SCU. Because of this, it is anticipated to be an especially tough round of bargaining. The CPSU NSW is committed to keeping you updated throughout the year.

Union benefits

It’s also useful to note the many advantages of being in the union that you may have forgotten about. First of all, we have regular training sessions, both in person and online, which you may be able to access. For more information please go HERE.

The CPSU NSW also offers Journey Cover Insurance, which is if you get injured going to and from work. We have a variety of other benefits including emergency ambulance cover, a free will service, and discounts for a variety of things from groceries to gym memberships. For more information click HERE.

The CPSU NSW is a member-led, democratic union. Membership gives you a real voice and a vote in determining your pay and working conditions.

Your union is here for you through everything. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’ve got any questions or concerns. We always put the interests of Professional Staff first.
