Together, we protect and improve your working conditions and the delivery of services to the Western Australian community.
CPSU/CSA members also save thousands each year across some of Australia’s biggest brands and retailers; like Myer, The Iconic, Woolworths + hundreds more through our network of member benefits partners.
