Major Win on PAWS Housing Policy!

OUR CPSU met with representatives from PWS management on Tuesday to discuss the issues surrounding the Housing Policy.  In great news for affected Members, management agreed to do what many of you have asked of them and has agreed to introduce Individual Tenancy Agreements for each and every PWS Home.

These Agreements will spell out the responsibilities of both Tenant and Landlord and this decision will give peace of mind to many affected Members.  PWS have informed us that these Agreements will be rolled out over the next twelve months.

If you have any questions at all about the implications this may have on you then please contact your CPSU Parks Organiser Nick via email at n.duncombe@tas.cpsu.com.au or (03) 6233 5689.

Being a union member is a bit like having insurance for your job. It’s like health insurance - you take it out just in case. It’s always good to have that support network to fall back on and know that the people involved with the union will go into bat for you – they won’t hold back they’ll do everything they possibly can for you. That’s why I joined the union in the first place. Being tax deductible and all the Member benefits – it was a no brainer for me. Tom
I believe in the power of collaboration. The CPSU works with the State Government to negotiate the best possible pay and conditions for its Members. It’s been proven that workplaces with strong unions pay higher wages, are safer and provide greater opportunities for training and career progression. The CPSU services also include advice, protection, and support at work –should you ever need it. Denny
During my working life I have changed jobs, moved over to the mainland, worked in isolated locations but have always taken my friend along with me. I consider my friend as my advisor, confidant, source of knowledge, inspirational leader and an essential part of my working life. My friend is my union card. Stephen
