Stronger Together

We have 1400 members throughout NZ, in most areas and departments of MPI. The union works on -

  • National issues affecting all members
  • Workplace issues affecting a number of members in a workplace or department
  • Individual member support and advice including disciplinary matters

Strong Collective Agreement

The Collective Agreement at MPI which provides a comprehensive set of employment terms and conditions. It's bargained regularly so we can negotiate pay and seek to improve your conditions.

Support for members

The union is supported by dozens of member volunteers (workplace delegates). To support members and delegates there are PSA union organisers (officials) throughout NZ.

Some of our successes (there are many!)

  • removing the previous "discretionary" pay system and replacing it with a open and clear step pay system
  • significant equal pay jolt for lower paid Support / Admin staff
  • dozens of members supported through individual issues and disciplinary processes
  • putting in place a permanent agreed roster for Auckland BCS "rotational" staff for the first time since the role was introduced
