CPSU’s What Women Want survey – the biggest survey of working women in Australia – is now open and CSIRO Staff Association members are strongly encouraged to participate.
Conducted every two years, What Women Want provides invaluable data about issues affecting women in public sector workplaces, and that information has helped CPSU and Staff Association campaigns to defend vital conditions like overtime for part-timers, Time Off In Lieu (TOIL), and working hours.
“People who identify as women have told us that their work matters to them, that flexibility is important and that they want to be valued,” CPSU National Secretary Melissa Donnelly said.
“But they’re also telling us that their jobs are becoming less secure, it’s getting harder to balance work with life and family and that the gender pay gap persists,” Ms Donnelly said.
Currently in its tenth iteration, the survey is conducted online and takes between ten and fifteen minutes to complete.
