The CSIRO Staff Association represents the industrial and professional interests of employees of the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation), the Anglo-Australian Observatory, and Co-operative Research Centres and supports members in the National Measurement Institute who were formerly staff of the National Measurement Laboratory in CSIRO prior to July 2004.
The Staff Association has around 3,000 members, that is, approximately half of all CSIRO staff, across every work area and geographical location in Australia.
Our strength is the power of our membership, and the willingness of members to be involved. The Staff Association is a section of the Community and Public Sector Union (CPSU), one of the largest unions in Australia. The CPSU represents scientists and science staff in government agencies such as the Bureau of Meteorology and the Australian Institute of Management. Together, we are a powerful voice for scientists and science staff in Australia.
CSIRO Staff Association members are represented at each site by their colleagues, who are elected as workplace delegates for a 12 month term. Delegates in each State or Territory form Sub-section Delegates Committees (SDCs) which meet on a regular basis to share information across workplaces and provide input to the CSIRO Staff Association (Section) Council. The CSIRO Staff Association is managed by a Council and Executive who are elected every three years. The President and Secretary are represented on the CPSU’s Governing Council.
The CSIRO Staff Association provides a representative, democratic voice for CSIRO staff. We advocate for you – for CSIRO, and for science. Join us!
