Member Story: It pays to be a CPSU member, Reclassification win

Farewell card

It pays to be a CPSU member
Reclassification win

The CPSU Member Service Centre (MSC) recently helped a member whose managers had tried to reclassify him from EL1 to ASP5 while seeking to have his position declared excess.

The move would have significantly cost the member financially in the event of a redundancy.  With the help of an MSC organiser, the member was able to negotiate a redundancy at his EL classification, ensuring a fair redundancy payout that reflected his years of service.

The member told us “The MSC’s excellent service gave me the confidence of knowing I was a CPSU member at the most difficult time of my working life. I am sure that I will join in the union again without hesitation if I have opportunity to work in Public Service in the future.”
