Gender Equal Pay work

In the 2019 bargaining we made Equal Pay improvements for Support Officers and staff who do similar work. PSA has now taken a wider claim across the whole Public Service for Admin and Support. Within MPI we are working on developing a Senior administration role. Our work is being led by delegate Monique Williams, Readiness and Response, Wellington

Health and Safety

We are advocating strongly for better H&S systems that really involve and include staff in solving  H & S issues. We are pushing for active frontline committees wherever possible. Current work has focused on Auckland Target Evaluators, Auckland Border, Compliance Services, Fisheries Observers.


There are a number of major problems with the payroll system. PSA is working alongside MPI as they improve the system. MPI keeps us up to date with progress and the actions they are taking.

Compliance Services

We are working on -

  1. The pay relativity problems caused by the recent NAIT appointments - waiting to hear back from MPI HR. Last raised with Compliance management early November.
  2. Whether the senior/rank progression should be unlinked from the COPS scale and aligned more with the CCDF and competencies.
  3. An improved, more active Health and Safety system for Compliance
