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.

 

Equal Pay for Public Service/ACC and Kāinga Ora

The PSA has set itself the goal that by 2024 all PSA members will be paid equally for work of equal value. We are working hard to achieve this for PSA members in the Public Service/ACC and Kāinga Ora.

You may have heard of the great outcomes for Oranga Tamariki social workers from our equal pay claim, but there is other work going on behind the scenes.
