Member Benefits

Industrial representation and the negotiating power of Australia's strongest Union

The single biggest benefit of being in the Union is the combined strength and power of standing together with other worker to demand the wages, working conditions, and safety we deserve.

That power delivers better wages and conditions through Union negotiated agreements that consistently deliver more money into the pocket of workers. In Australia, Union members earn an average of $100 a week more than non-union members.
