Community and Public Sector Union Victoria (CPSU)

  • Campaigns

    Campaigns are the lifeblood of our union. From enterprise bargaining to specific workplace issues campaigns are about members influencing and improving their workplaces.

    CPSU is always campaigning for better working conditions and entitlements. These campaigns range from regular enterprise bargaining campaigns to improve existing conditions of employment, to campaigns against changes occuring in workplaces that may reduce the conditions for CPSU members.

    CPSU has a team which is there for you with the resources and experience to help you put colour into campaign/recruitment efforts.

    Call the union and speak with their Membership Development Team Organiser.

    Current Campaigns

    The gender pay gap in the Victorian Public Service is currently 12%. 

    We think women should be paid the same as men. We think women should be offered the same opportunities as men. We think it's time to close the gap. 

    There are a number of ways you can get active in your workplace to help close the gap.

    Past Campaigns

    The Victorian Government has announced its intention to privatise Victoria's Land Titles Office. For 155 years, the Land Titles Office has tirelessly scrutinised every survey, mortgage and transaction on Victoria's four million-odd properties, perfecting this priceless public asset.

    Selling the titles office will see annual revenue of up to $300 million stripped from funding other public services like hospitals, roads, and schools, and will also lead to increased costs for Victorians.

    Every election the Victorian Liberal Party promises not to cut public sector jobs.

    Then they do. Every single time. Help save public sector jobs this election.

    To mark International Women's Day on March 8, we're running our Sign Up A Sister initiative to grow our CPSU sisterhood.

    Having a strong female union membership is vital to progress important issues like closing the gender pay gap, eradicating gender based workplace violence, and protecting paid parental leave rights.

    From now until the end of March, if you sign up a sister to CPSU you will go into the running to win a $100 Endota Spa voucher, and the member you sign up will get one too!

    Simply mark membership form with 'IWD' and your name under the Campaign Code or referral section. If you are joining without referral simply include the code 'IWD' in the campaign code section and you will go into the running. So why not have a chat to the women in your workplace about the benefits of union membership.
