Starting a new job can be an exciting but also nerve-wracking experience. Learning new systems,
meeting new workmates and getting a handle on how things work will take some time.
A lot of us working for Nurse Maude are also members of the Public Service Association (PSA). e
PSA is our shared voice on issues aecting us as Nurse Maude employees, and connects us together
through mutual support.
Together, we’ve negotiated with Nurse Maude to provide beneﬁts for PSA members like two extra
days of sick leave for union members.
We’d love it if you would join us in the PSA – you’ll be joining hundreds of your co-workers and
adding your voice to nearly 6200 Community Public Service Workers nationwide in support of
better public services.
You can join quickly and easily online – just visit psa.org.nz/join. Or ﬁll in the form that is with this
As a PSA member, you will also be entitled to a range of other great beneﬁts including access to 41
holiday homes around the country, discounts on insurance, mortgage rates, car hire and more.
e PSA is New Zealand’s largest union. Our CPS members join together with others in the public,
health and local government sectors to work together for better wages and conditions, and on
public campaigns for issues like equal pay for women, fairer employment legislation and a better
democracy for all New Zealanders.
If you have any questions, some of your co-workers have been elected as PSA delegates to represent
the union at Nurse Maude– you can talk to Eileen O’Brien. Alternatively you can phone the PSA
organising centre on 0508 367 772.
Congratulations on the new job, and we look forward to having you in the PSA!
