What is Te Tira Hauora? Kei te aha?
Te Tira Hauora is a a national committee of eight regional delegates from the four areas in the PSA’s DHB sector.
It works on cultural issues that are relevant to Maori across the ‘motu’ and in the workplace.
It's responsibility is to ensure Maori representation in the DHB sector committee and in the PSA's Komiti of Te Runanga o Nga Toa Awhina.
Delegates for Te Tira Hauora are voted in at regional delegates meetings. These delegates are elected Maori enterprise delegates and each represent their DHB workplace. Te Tira Hauora committee members are known in the union as ‘Sector Mangai’.
We meet twice yearly to compare notes and act as a liaison between both national committees mentioned above; other times we teleconference around the board papers before the PSA executive board meets.
Te Tira Hauora arranges and manages the biennial hui “Te Hui Hauora”.
