Problems at work?

If you are facing problems at work, find out what employer policies you are covered by, and then if necessary contact your local steward for advice.

CSP stewards have been trained to deal with members' problems, including harassment and discrimination. In complex cases, local stewards will be supported by CSP senior negotiating officers. 

CSP members also have access to professional legal services.
