Former SLGOU worksites

In 2015, the PSA merged with the Southern Local Government Officers Union, whose membership were mostly based in Canterbury and Otago local government.

Workplaces where members were formerly represented by SLGOU have transitional arrangements for fees for three years following the merger.

This online membership form will update automatically to these fees if your employer is one of these workplaces. You can also download and print the PSA-SLGOU transition membership form which contains the fees. The merger webpage has more information about the process, including a full list of employers.
