Delegates are key to a strong and vibrant union. They ensure every workplace has a voice and is able to harness the collective strength of Members to achieve outcomes in that workplace.
The CPSU provides Delegates with training, mentoring and support. We work to ensure they have the skills and confidence to support Members, encourage potential members to join and facilitate involvement in wider union campaigns and activities.
If you're not sure who the Delegate is for your work group, contact us at CPSU@tas.cpsu.com.au or by calling (03) 6234 1708 and we'll help you identify them!
We're so glad you're keen! You can nominate to become a Delegate at the bottom of the page.
No, a union Delegate is a unique role elected by union members to represent their work group.
Health and safety representatives, commonly referred to as HSRs, are workers who are elected to represent the health and safety interests of their work group. The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 allows workers within a business or undertaking to be grouped into work groups so they can elect a member of their group to represent them.
Members may only elect one Delegate per work group, however you may also start a Delegate team by electing a Delegate.
We also encourage members to become HSRs and work together with Delegates to make our voice even stronger.
