As well as fighting to protect and improve your jobs, pay and workplace rights, CPSU members can often be found making a difference in the broader NT community. Whether it’s showing solidarity for military veterans or collecting food and toys for folks doing it tough, CPSU member are happy to lend a hand where we can. Below are some recent examples. If you’d like to get involved, please contact Elli Morris or Dawn McQuilkin

Toy Drive for Flood victims

Walking off the war within

Walking off the war within is a charity walk for veterans. The CPSU was proud to support this cause by participating in the walk and by giving and encouraging donations.

Breast Cancer Awareness
