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.
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.
The Staff Association is an essential accountability structure to safeguard the rights and conditions of CSIRO employees.
