Collective bargaining is one of the key ways in which PSA members can work together to improve their living standards and the quality of working life.

The PSA bargains for members in over 400 organisations that between them represent the full breadth and diversity of the public sector. Each sector has its own particular needs and the PSA's bargaining strategies are drawn up accordingly. Effective recruitment and strong delegate structures are at the heart of union organisation in the workplace. The PSA has nearly 4,000 workplace delegates and runs a comprehensive programme of delegate development, including a series of courses on the skills and knowledge needed for the job.
