Why should you join CPSU?
CPSU Victoria are the Community and Public Sector Union who represent the Victorian Public Service (VPS) and related agencies.
Joining CPSU is about improving the working environment for members. Rates of pay, career structures and employment conditions are all based within the Award and Agreements negotiated by unions. For example, CPSU negotiated the Victorian Public Service Enterprise Agreement that ensures your wage increases each year. By joining CPSU you are ensuring you have a team behind you to help negotiate these wages and conditions. The more members our union has the stronger our negotiation position and better off every worker is.
CPSU membership is also protection for your most important asset-your job. With employment and working conditions becoming less secure every day, union membership is an essential way to ensure you have immediate access to experienced industrial advisors and their advice when you need it most. CPSU membership gives you access to our Industrial Specialists so when you have questions about your rights and entitlements, you know who to call. If you ever feel like your workplace is acting improperly or not giving you the correct wage or conditions you can contact us and our team and let us help you ensure you are treated fairly.
Joining us also gives you access to exclusive training and development opportunities. From health and safety courses, workplace gender equality training to the popular public sector courses in areas such as administration or policy and project work. Being a member gives you access to multiple opportunities to develop and gain an edge in a competitive job market.
