About the Collieries’ Staff and Officials Association

The Collieries’ Staff and Officials Association (CSOA) is more than a union – we are also a professional association. We represent Collieries' staff and officials including supervisory, professional, administrative, clerical and technical employees, and we have been doing so since 1944. Our members are located across Australia in the coalfields of the Illawarra, Western District, the Hunter and Newcastle in New South Wales, the Bowen Basin, Surat Basin and Ipswich in Queensland and in Tasmania and Western Australia. We are run for members by members.
