PSA at MPI
Kia ora and welcome to the PSA at Ministry of Primary Industries pages. This information is for PSA members only.
The union for MPI staff - "Stronger Together"
We have over 1,000 members, throughout NZ, in most areas and departments of MPI.
The union works at three levels –
- Individual member support and advice including disciplinary matters
- Workplace issues affecting a number of members in a workplace or department
- National issues affecting all members
We have a Collective Agreement with MPI which provides for a strong and comprehensive set of employment terms and conditions. The Agreement is re-negotiated on a regular basis so we can negotiate pay and seek to improve your conditions.
Support for members
The union is supported by dozens of workplace delegates who are member volunteers. There are a number of national delegates as well, they are senior delegates who get more involved in union matters (see below). To support members and delegates there are several union organisers (officials) throughout
