Our Work Matters: How you can help our members at Access Community Health


We welcome your support to help these workers achieve a decent pay increase that recognises and values their very important work coordinating the care and support of some of our most vulnerable people in our communities.

You can get behind our members at Access Community Health by writing to CE Access Chief Executive Alison Van Wyk to tell them how important it is that PSA and E tū members get a fair deal.

You can send your own message, or use our suggestion below:

Dear Alison Van Wyk,

I'm writing to urge you to return to the negotiating table and offer a fair pay deal for PSA and E tū members working in administration, coordination, and call centres for Access Community Health.

The work of union members at Access Community Health is highly valuable, and has been underappreciated for far too long.

These PSA and E tū  members play a vital role in Access' ability to provide critical services that your clients use every day.

They love what they do and they want to make a difference, but they're struggling with overwork, understaffing and making ends meet on low pay.

These workers want to ensure that clients are well supported for the long term, which means Access Community Health need to invest in this critical workforce.

Please do the right thing and return to these members with a fair deal.

Yours sincerely

(your name here)

We ask you to contact alison_vanwyk@access.org.nz by email or if you would prefer post, to:

Alison van Wyk CEO, 
Access Community Health
P.O. Box 38139, 
Wellington Mail Centre,
