A key component of the AGM is the election of your UOW CPSU NSW Delegates.

We strongly encourage members to nominate and become a Delegate on the Branch Team:

  • To have your say in how your union is run and be a part of a collective effort to improve your rights at work.
  • Build strength on the ground to advance and protect Professional Staff interests.

Our unique strength as the Professional Staff Union is the diversity of the membership:

  • CPSU NSW members work across all faculties and units.
  • CPSU NSW members work across a large range of vocations and professions.

The current UOW Branch is keen to encourage more members to nominate across the university and vocations to add your experience to the team. If you have ever thought about getting more involved in YOUR union, now is the time!
