About the CPSU
Our Public Service delivers opportunties, protection and better lives for all Tasmanians.
We strengthen communities.
The CPSU is the most established union and industry advocate for Tasmania’s public sector employees.
The Community and Public Sector Union (State Public Services Federation Tasmania) is a union that represents thousands of Tasmanians working across the public and community sectors.
Work every day to:
- Protect our children and support Tasmanian families
- Care for the sick and get them back on their feet
- Keep the community safe and turn lives around
- Promote our export industries and unique island state
- Protect our world-renowned natural environment
- Build the skills Tasmania needs for the future
- Deliver expert advice to move our state forward
Job and funding cuts undermine the public sector built by generations of Tasmanians.
The Tasmanian public sector is a strong union workplace and the Community & Public Sector Union is the union fighting for public services every day.
Join your CPSU, stand up for what generations have built and the values that make our sector strong, and make sure you and your colleagues have a strong voice into the future.
Together we can strengthen our public sector
You know the challenges our state faces and the solutions that will work
You need time and resources to deliver the services Tasmanians need.
Your skills should be recognised and invested in.
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

MAST helps Members with a range of issues including:
- Misconduct investigations
- Workplace harassment and bullying

- Reclassification and appeals
- Workers compensation
Organising & Campaigning Team
Our Organising & Campaigning Team (OCT) helps workplaces organise themselves so they can win on the big issues.
Organisers coordinate Members around an issue and provide the necessary tools and mentoring to achieve the desired outcome. They work to develop local leadership on issues through the development of skilled and supported Workplace Delegates.
Got a story? Had a big win in your workplace? Know a Member or Delegate who’s gone over and above? Our communications team would love to hear from you.
We share news in regular email updates to both Members and Delegates, share news here, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
