Local Government

The PSA is the largest union in local government with more than 6,000 members.

If you work at a council, council-controlled company or organisation, or a local public institution - we’re the union for you.

The local government sector has its own national committee and a seat on the PSA Executive Board, this ensures your sector has a voice at all levels of PSA decision-making.

You can meet the members of the committee here.
