The CPSU is beginning our phone calling efforts for the Change the Rules campaign this week. This Federal Election will be crucial in deciding who makes the rules we’re trying to change, and in the APS who our employer will be.
Like other workers, we are in a workplace system where the rules are broken and don’t deliver for working people. Our pay is going backwards while we lose job security. Our capacity to do a good job for the community is reduced while we face cuts to our rights. Years of staffing caps, budget cuts, outsourcing, labour hire and privatisation in the Federal Public Service are taking their toll.
That is why we are talking to our members in key marginal seats and asking them to vote for a party that supports our Change the Rules agenda.
We will be calling members from our office twice a week until the real election campaign starts after the Federal Budget. Can you help?

Dinner will be provided so make sure you let us know if you have any dietary requirements in your RSVP!
Yours in unity
