CSN Membership to AFEI: a bonus for members

AFEI is an independent peak employers group, with its main purpose being to advise, represent and assist employers – helping them meet their workplace regulation obligations. It assists with human resources management, provides WHS training and, importantly, seeks appropriate regulation from government. AFEI also has an in-house legal team.
