We do this as the democratic voice for staff. We advocate for CSIRO and science. We provide the means to promote a community of staff in CSIRO so that we can assist members to access their rights.
Staff Association members know that when we work together, we get a better deal. That principle doesn’t just apply to our working conditions and pay, it also means we can use our collective power to get a better deal on shopping and services.
CSIRO Staff Association makes sure we’re connected in our workplaces. I helped to establish a Men’s Health event at Clayton. We have heaps of events that bring together the diverse communities of CSIRO.
The Staff Association is an essential accountability structure to safeguard the rights and conditions of CSIRO employees.
Having a Staff Association delegate to support me in the workplace was very reassuring and just knowing I wasn’t alone helped me a great deal.
