The CPSU NSW and PSA’s Aboriginal Liaison Officer advises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members on matters of importance to them and their workplace.

Mal Cochrane is currently on leave.

The PSA has recently appointed Ann Weldon as Aboriginal Liaison Officer in Mal’s absence.

A member of the Kalar River people, in the Wiradjuri nation, Ms Weldon has worked at AHDC Burwood, in the Community Support Team – Sydney Local District, since 2015.

Prior to that, she was at the Metro North Region – Parramatta Local Office and the Rosebery ADHC Office for Metro South Region.

She is also a Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council Board Member and Elder.

Most of the employers the CPSU NSW deals with are required to have employment strategies for Aboriginal People as part of their Equal Employment Opportunity plans. Contact your local Human Resources to ask for a copy.

Anne and a number of other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members of the CPSU NSW have established an Aboriginal Council to advise the CSPU NSW on matters affecting members and to build networks of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander across the state. If you would like to get involved, please contact Anne.
