Briefing for incoming ministers
After each election, the PSA provides a briefing to Ministers.
We don’t brief every Minister, just the key ones who are responsible for the sectors of our membership, and for the strategic issues.
This year, we decided to spare Ministers the task of reading a long document and have instead prepared a folder with information sheets on the PSA, on our issues, and on portfolio-specific matters that we want to discuss in a meeting with the Minister. In the folder, we have also included our leaflets on our campaigns.
Briefings have been prepared for Ministers responssible for the following areas, and the PSA secretariat are meeting with them to follow up on the matters we are raising:
Hon Dr Jonathan Coleman, Minister of Health
Hon Paula Bennett, Minister for Local Government
Hon Paula Bennett, Minister of State Services
Hon Louise Upston, Minister for Women
Hon Te Ururoa Flavell, Minister for Māori Development
