State Budget: Wages Policy Gone

Union members have greeted the scrapping of the McGowan government’s outdated and restrictive Wages Policy with enthusiasm. 

CPSU/CSA Branch Secretary Rikki Hendon has welcomed the government’s decision to end its policy of wage suppression and bring forward a review of government wages policy. 

"The collective might of public sector union members has brought an end to five years of the $1000 pay cap."

JUNE 2021

Unions launch Public Sector Alliance

WA's biggest Unions have officially launched The Public Sector Alliance to break wages policy and bring back fair and true bargaining power to the public sector.

The Alliance brings together your Union, the CPSU/CSA, alongside members from SSTUWA, Health Services Union, WA Prison Officers Union, and United Workers Union to name a few.

This is the biggest joining of Unions for collective action in WA, and sends a powerful message to the McGowan government that Wages Policy will not stand.
