PSA/CPSU NSW LGBTQI+ Committee: Nominations now open!

Good news! The PSA/CPSU NSW has formally set up a LGBTQI+ Council  for members and their allies. This will be a forum to discuss issues affecting their community in the workplace.

LGBTQI+ rights are workers’ rights. From pink bans to the marriage equality campaign, to fighting discrimination in the workplace, to fighting for transition leave in modern Awards and Agreements, the union movement has been heavily involved in fighting for LGBTQI+ rights. This can be your chance to get more involved.

Members have been reaching out to the PSA/CPSU NSW on issues affecting the community. It is vital that the union’s position, campaigns and lobbying are based on issues important to LGBTQI+ members. The group will meet quarterly at PSA House to discuss issues and help guide the union in all matters that affect the LGBTQI+ community.

It’s also an opportunity to meet and network with other LGBTQI+  members, create campaigns and help plan any events, including World Pride, which is coming up in 2023!

If you have any questions about nominating, or the group in general, please email .
