More than a thousand CSIRO staff have rallied against Government budget cuts at workplace events across Australia. The message opposing cuts to science was loud and clear - and the public took notice. Full report here.

Claim your dues   

Don't forget that your union dues are completely tax deductible. The key piece of documentation is your PAYG summary, look under the deductions heading. The Staff Association does NOT issue statements - unless you pay by invoice.


If the Staff Association is to continue standing up for CSIRO employees, fighting back against job cuts and protecting working conditions - then we must convince more people to join the union. Please, make an effort this week. Talk to a colleague about Staff Association membership. Join today.

Message to the Minister 

Following our protest action against cuts to CSIRO jobs and research the Staff Association has written to Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane seeking an urgent meeting.  
We're also asking for people to get involved in the upcoming Senate Inquiry into Australian Innovation. More here.
