PSA Secretariat re-appointed


PSA Secretariat re-appointed

The PSA’s three-person secretariat has been reappointed for a further three-year term, PSA Vice-President Cheryl Talamaivao said today.

“Our current secretariat, Richard Wagstaff, Lynn Middleton, and Paul Cochrane will retain their roles and continue the successful work they have done for the last three years. They have been at the helm of the PSA through a time of great industrial change following the demise of the Employment Contracts Act and the instatement of the Employment Relations Act.”

Cheryl Talamaivao said the PSA ‘s membership continues to grow as people working in the public sector realised the benefits of belonging to the sector’s largest union.

“The secretariat have worked hard to promote and foster the PSA’s strategy of partnership and inclusion, which we strongly believe is the only way forward for a quality New Zealand public service.
