NSW Field Organisers PD – June 22

The CPSU (PSU Group) is one of Australia’s most active and innovative trade unions. CPSU members work in the Australian Public Service, the ACT and NT governments, and a number of community and private sector areas.

Our Purpose

CPSU members work together to secure better working lives for all. We work collectively to ensure workers are safe at work, have fair rights, pay and conditions, and a voice at work. We act with integrity and stand in solidarity where workers are attacked. We know strong union workplaces deliver better public services. As part of the broad labour movement, all that we do supports progressive social change and environmental justice.

Our focus

To do this, we work together to:

  1. Build power and be a bigger, stronger union that is led from the workplace
  • Engage with non-members, particularly workers who don’t have a relationship with us
  • Engage existing members, build commitment and activism
  • Support and empower delegates and workplace leaders.
  1. Achieve results for members and workers in our industries
  • Campaign with delegates and members to address issues affecting our workplaces
    • Work with delegates and members to advocate for and address issues affecting our industries
  • Work with delegates and members to advocate for and address policy and political issues affecting our lives and future.

As an employer we offer family friendly conditions and leave entitlements, 15.4% superannuation, and access to health and wellbeing initiatives. Our friendly staff are passionate about the work they do and committed to union values, helping others, and making a positive contribution to society. Working with the CPSU means you will work side by side with other union members to make our workplaces and communities fairer.

Overview

The primary function of this role is to develop and implement effective campaigns and strategies to assist members to bring about positive change in their workplaces.

There is a strong emphasis on recruiting members and developing members, delegates and workplace leaders.

The position is focused on meeting key union objectives of:

  • Helping members achieve fairness at work, job security, and the best possible pay and decent conditions
