Action Continues - Members to Meet on Revised Offer

17 February 2016

Public Service Association (PSA) Industrial Officers and Worksite Representatives attended the Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) yesterday, 16 February 2016, to attempt to resolve the ongoing dispute with Families SA.

At the conclusion of discussions no agreement had been reached. The current industrial action continues.

The Department for Education and Child Development (DECD) sent a counter offer to the PSA just prior to the hearing but, as the offer did not contain the improvements members are seeking, PSA representatives could not agree to suspend the bans.

At the conclusion of negotiations at the IRC DECD agreed to send a revised offer to the PSA by close of business today, 17 February 2016.

The DECD offer will be considered and discussed by PSA members at the members meeting. This will be an essential meeting for members to attend, discuss all issues and decide on direction of the campaign.
