Extra Member Benefits
Union members win
By being a member of your union, you are building a better life.
Being part of your union is about having a voice at work so you can speak out about the things that affect you. Things like fair wages, hours of work, time off for when you get sick or want to take holidays didn’t just happen: they came about because union members made them happen.
And now we keep working as a group to have a better working life.
Good pay and conditions are important not just at work: they are important to our lives. Having good conditions means we can do the things we enjoy, spend time with family and friends, and look after each other. It also means we can protect services to the community and the many things that make Queensland a great place to live.
Union membership is fully tax deductible. As well as that, Together members have access to great value added benefits like discounts on goods and services via Union Shopper, great advice and support getting the best home loans deal via Union Shopper Mortgage Brokers, free legal consultations from a range of excellent providers, specialised private health care from TUH and banking with ME Bank.
Union Shopper is all about ensuring members receive great value for money on whatever you are looking to buy. At no cost to you, we help save time and money, without the hassles and headache.
Be part of the savings and make the most of this valuable money saving service. Before you make another purchase, remember Union Shopper and challenge us to find you a better deal.
