The CPSU NSW bargaining team met with Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) management representatives on 19 December 2022 to progress discussions on the transition of CPSU NSW members to the existing CPA Enterprise Agreement.

CPA management has provided an indicative timeline. Dates and the activities follow:

10 January 2023

CPA will circulate contracts to affected employees. As part of the package, affected employees will also receive elections forms for:

  • Salary packaging options; and,
  • Leave cashing out options.

27 January 2023

Completed contract, salary packaging and leave cashing out forms by affected employees wishing to accept offers of ongoing employment with CPA under the new arrangements to be lodged.

This will allow for CPA pay systems to be adjusted as per employee nominations.
