In service-wide bargaining in 2023, the CPSU secured strong rights for delegates across the APS to better represent members.

The CPSU negotiated the APSC Circular 2022/09: Union Representation in Commonwealth Agencies which set out union delegates’ rights and required agencies to facilitate respectful and productive relationships between employers and unions. Now these core rights and directives are enshrined in your Enterprise Agreement.

There are also new changes to the Fair Work Act 2009 that create protections for delegates performing their role in the workplace.
