What’s happening?

For the first time in almost 10 years, the Australian Public Service has been conducting a review of the classification system.

The classification structure is important because it affects employees’ pay, career progression, the nature of the work that you do at your level, and your opportunities for development. The APS Hierarchy and Classification Review is being undertaken by an independent panel, which aims to produce its final report by the end of 2021.

What is the CPSU doing?

Because a classification review has the potential for wide-reaching and significant impacts on employees’ lives at work, CPSU members must have a clear and strong voice in this Review. CPSU representatives have been meeting with the Panel. We also gathered interested members together to give detailed input, which provided the basis of the CPSU’s formal submission to the Panel.

What can you do?

  1. Read the CPSU submission

The CPSU will update members as the Panel’s recommendations become available.
