(a) Being heard within the PSA

The PSA has democratic structures that enable members to have a say in the decisions that affect them at work and in shaping PSA policy through our wider governance structures. This section sets out the democratic structures of the union, both at the workplace level and at the level of the governance of the union .


Workplace and enterprise level structures are based around delegates elected by members, delegate committees and annual members’ meetings. These structures connect to the governance level structures that shape the policy of the PSA – Sector Committees, the Executive Board and the National Delegates Congress.

At both workplace/enterprise level and governance level within the union, Māori members are represented through the structures of Te Rūnanga o Ngā Toa Āwhina.
