CPSU members achieve better pay and conditions by acting collectively and supporting each other.
Official figures continue to show that union members earn 16% more than non-unionists on average, and that union members have greater access to leave, superannuation and other employment conditions. This is the difference that collective bargaining makes.
Having a core bargaining claim helps in all our bargaining campaigns. Achieving good bargaining outcomes will continue to rely on union members participating actively in bargaining campaigns and employees showing their support by joining the union.
