National Delegate Janine McIovr, a Canterbury Local Hero


Janine McIvor a PSA National Delegate for Canterbury and a Youth Justice Social Worker for Child Youth and Family is this weeks Local Hero story.

Luke local heroJanine has been our local hero in the Canterbury operations area for quite some time now! She fields queries from local members about everything from pay and conditions to "can you point me in the right direction”. 

Janine is truly committed to ensuring the fair and equal treatment of PSA members in Canterbury. It is at the forefront of her work. She spends a lot of her own time going above and beyond with member’s personal cases to ensure correct processes have been followed and a fair outcome is reached.

Janine mentors other delegates in the region and also represents members at a national level with senior management. Janine is an active SWAN member and has been proactive in the PSA input to the change process with the new agency Oranga Tamariki.

When Janine is not going into bat for PSA members or strategically engaging with management she is working on the frontline with CYF young people. Janine shows care and support to the young people she works with and works hard to try and get them onto a positive pathway and a future out of the youth justice system.

Thanks to Luke Stenton a fellow PSA delegate for nominating Janine. Remember if you know of a local hero you want to tell us about email us standtogether@psa.org.nz
