Union Delegation Meets Federal Minister

Linda Burney discusses The Voice and the union movement’s role in its success.

Representatives of the PSA/CPSU NSW travelled to Canberra to discuss The Voice with the Commonwealth Minister for Indigenous Australians Linda Burney.

The delegation, pictured from left, included Aboriginal Liaison Officer Ricky Walford, General Secretary Stewart Little and Manager Relationships and Strategy Mal Cochrane.

“While our union’s policy on The Voice is yet to be decided by our Aboriginal Council, it was important to be able to talk with the first woman who identifies as Aboriginal to serve in the role of Minister for Indigenous Australians,” said Mr Little. “I am proud to lead a union that has an active, go-getting Aboriginal Council.”

Mr Little also caught up with Federal Education Minister Jason Clare during the visit to Canberra to discuss funding of the country’s state schools.
