Help at hand when you need it

Being a union member means you're never alone when you have problems at work.

To obtain assistance from CPSU, simply complete the Application for Representation form below.

The Application for Representation form asks you to detail exactly what your problem is, what you've done about it so far, and what or how you would like the union to help.

When you submit your application for representation your case is processed and managed by the CPSU's Entitlements and Compliance Team.

Your case will be assigned to one of our skilled, experienced and professional Industrial Officers. You will be assigned a personal case number and then contacted to discuss your issue further. We will not commence any official proceedings or contact your management before we have discussed the case personally with you.

Before you apply:

Our Application for Representation is the first step for CPSU members in getting direct assistance from the union*. Complete your details in this form, and a CPSU Industrial Officer will be assigned to your case to help solve your problem.

Have you?

* Applicants please note that the CPSU reserves the right to accept or reject any application and may, at any time, discontinue representation. Non members should note our pre-existing issues policy.
