Contribution increase

Published on: Jun 27 2019

Increases are necessary for the Union to continue the time consuming and expensive work of fighting for a better deal for our members. Considering this need, a small contribution increase will take effect on and from 1 July 2019.

Our contribution structure is based on the number of hours actually worked by an employee and will operate as follows.


From 1 July 2019 employees working:

  • less than 10 hours per week....$4.10
  • 10 hours or more but less than 20 hours per week....$7.30
  • 20 hours or more per week....$10.20


The Union maintains a high level of services to its members and in order to ensure that this can continue, we need to provide the financial base for continued effective operation.

The Union is confident that our new subscription levels will enable us to function on a sound financial basis and provide high-quality representation, services, benefits and discounts to our members.

Please give us a call on 1300 732 4357 or email if you have any other questions about the increase.
