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.

It’s great to be part of a union because a lot of voices are heard a lot more clearly than one little voice in the wilderness – it’s that power of collectiveness that’s so important. I’ve witnessed so many times where a group of people can make such a change. Tania
Alone you strive alone; together you can strive for more. The CPSU is there to help me, and not only me, but collectively my group of peers and workmates. Unions are where our Work Health and Safety comes from, that’s where our holidays come from, that’s where our superannuation and maternity leave came from. Tina
“To be honest, I’m not in the union to get more money. If I have a problem I can get advice. It’s the support I like … you know they’re on your side. I’ve had a long, satisfactory association with the union." Jessica, CPSU Member of almost 30 years
