PSA Women

A woman's place is in her union

Women have always had an important role in the union movement, organising together to improve our working lives.  While we have come a long way, there is still more campaigning needed and change to be made.

Join our PSA Women's Network.

By getting involved with our network you can:

  • Connect - You will meet like-mind union women from all across the SA Public Sector
  • Develop new skills - by attending our events and training, there will be opportunities to build your advocacy skills and expand your knowledge of gendered issues in the workplace. 
  • Make an impact - Your participation will help ensure that there is a gendered lens on our union campaigns, advocacy and lobbying.
