Join

Joining the CSIRO Staff Association is a simple process – simply fill in a membership form and return it to our office by post, fax or email.

STANDARD MEMBERSHIP FORM (for CSIRO staff)

AAO MEMBERSHIP FORM (for AAO staff)

The subscription rate is 0.55% of salary for CSIRO and AAO staff. Membership is fully tax deductible and is transferred as part of your fortnightly pay with your payslip showing the transferred amount.

The membership form directs CSIRO/AAO to deduct from your salary an amount equivalent to your fortnightly union dues and pay it to either Members & Education Credit Union (MECU) or Laboratories Credit Union (LCU). It then directs the relevant credit union to pay this amount to the CSIRO Staff Association. Please note – the Subscription Deduction Facility is about MECU or LCU collecting an authorised deduction from your salary and paying this to the union. It does not give the CSIRO Staff Association access to your salary or your Credit Union accounts.

Subscriptions can also be paid directly to the Association on an annual basis, payable in advance on receipt of our invoice. Please contact the Association office csstaff@cpsu.org.au to arrange this.

Former CSIRO and AAO staff can become Retired members for $30 per annum. Students can join for $30, which covers the entire length of their course. Download our ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP FORM.

Casual staff can also join. Download our CASUAL MEMBER FORM. We look forward to welcoming you into our community of scientists and support staff who are interested in making their workplaces a better place in which to work and conduct science.

(Unfortunately we do not yet have an online joining mechanism yet but we’re working on it!)

  1. Why is the membership a percentage of salary? Do people on higher salary get more benefits due to paying more?

    • The feeds are progressive to make membership dues more affordable for people on lower incomes. That is, members on higher incomes pay more and help subsidise the cost of dues for members at the other end of the scale. All members are treated equally, receive the same level of service and enjoy the same rights.
