Return to workplaces working group
As CSIRO embarks on the gradual process of reopening sites as part of the organisation’s ongoing coronavirus pandemic response; the Staff Association has established a ‘Return to workplaces’ working group of members and delegates.
The aim of the working group is to provide timely and proactive advice to Staff Association officials and to better represent issues and concerns when making representations to CSIRO management.
Staff Association members are welcome to be involved in the activities of the working group. For more information email [email protected] or speak to a member of the working group (see below).
