State Sector

Focusing on your sector

PSA membership in the state sector sector is growing rapidly. To make sure your interests are fully represented, we've made changes to our structure and created a structure for members working in the wider state services – the State Sector.

The State 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.

The difference the PSA can make

We know that funding in the sector is tight.  It is getting harder for organisations to meet the growing demands in their communities and elsewhere.  It's also getting harder to provide employees with job security and the pay and conditions they deserve.

The services and support that you provide are important.  With a growing membership, the PSA will be in your corner.  We have the expertise to work with you for decent pay and employment conditions, a good working environment, and for your voice to be included in workplace decisions. 

We will be a strong advocate for you and for the work you do.
