Briefings to the Incoming Ministers

One of the PSA's most important functions that often goes unnoticed is its role in informing and influencing politicians about the biggest issues facing workers.

With the election of the new Government, the policy team in Wellington have spent several long weeks preparing Briefings to the Incoming Ministers (BIMs): detailed documents outlining PSA policies and concerns on all manner of subjects where new Ministers are being briefed – health, local government, state services, workplace relations and safety, among many more.

PSA national secretaries alongside the policy team will soon be meeting with many of the new Ministers and offering a lay of the landscape on issues affecting members. These BIMs are a useful source of information about the state of the nation, and they will be available online from the PSA website over the next few weeks.
