Frequently Asked Questions

Unions collectively bargain for better pay and conditions, provide representation at work, and engage in community and political campaigns that impact members’ lives.

When joining online you can select to pay either by credit/debit card, or via direct debit.

Unions are run to benefit their members, not for profit. Membership fees are used to provide services and advocate on behalf of members, like representation and legal support, training and development opportunities, expert information, collectively bargain on behalf of workers, and run community/political campaigns to further our members interests (like our Change Aged Care campaign!).
