Support our members in Community Services

PSA CPSU NSW members in Newcastle may have seen front page media coverage of today’s action by workers at Edgeworth Community Services Centre (CSC).

NSW Community Services is in crisis. Staff are leaving in droves thanks to low wages and appalling workload. The previous government’s disastrous outsourcing policies have seen private operators charge huge sums to care for children in need, sometimes outsourcing the work to untrained staff.

In addition, the Edgeworth CSC has been threatened with closure, letting down not just workers there but the vulnerable families that depend on its operations.

If they are able, PSA CPSU NSW members are encouraged to come to Edgeworth CSC at 12:30pm today, 18 April 2024, to show their support for their follow unionists.

The centre is at 720 Main Road Edgeworth.

Come show your support.
