The DPSU represents the interests of it members especially as they seek to improve their lives and those of their families. The union represents these interests at work and in the wider community.

Article 2 of the union’s Constitution lists the objects of the union. These include “achieving improvements in conditions of service”, representing members on “all matters concerning their welfare”, and establishing and supporting “schemes of an economic nature” that enhance the welfare of members and their dependents.

Every day the union represents its members in the workplace, protecting them from unfair practices and actions, preserving their human rights and ensuring that they are aware of their rights as workers.

All of this is in addition to its role in bargaining for wages and salaries and conditions of service that benefit not only current workers but also all workers in the country. Most of the benefits that all people enjoy are because of the work and efforts of trade unions.
