Stand Together - Ka tū tahi tātou


Stand Together CMYK Vertical Positive WEB

Stand Together, Ka tū tahi tātou,  is our campaign for stronger public and community services, and the people in our communities who work hard every day to provide them. From librarians to customs officials, from home support workers to DOC rangers, more than 62,000 PSA members are striving to make New Zealand the best it can be.

But it’s getting harder. The Government intends to cut services, reduce accountability and push costs onto everyday New Zealanders. These decisions take a toll on real people.

The 2016 local body and DHB elections have shown what we think matters as a country. We believe in thriving communities, strong healthcare and better access to services for everyone, not just those who can afford it.

Right now we are preparing our election asks for the 2017 general election. Tell us what you're concerned about and the change you'd like to see by filling in our survey here.

Keep up to date with the Stand Together campaign by joining at the top right of this page. 

If we stand together, we will make a difference.
