Value for money
Together members have access to benefits collectively that we don’t have alone. Things like collective buying power, discounts at Union Health Funds, our ASU training and professional development program and the ability to have a free will drafted by our union law firm.
To find out more about the added benefits you have as a union member read on.
Saving Members' Money
With cost of living pressure being a big issue for members, we know how important it is to save every cent wherever possible.
That’s why we use our bargaining power nationally through the Member Advantage program to secure better deals for members on your weekly shop, and other cost of living expenses to help you with your budget.
As a member of Together ASU you have the bonus advantage of having Maurice Blackburn in your corner.
We have a 100-year history of fighting for Australians to get a fair go, and we have fought alongside and on behalf of trade unions every step of the way. That's a century of providing successful and innovative legal advice to trade unions across Australia, covering workplace disputes, industrial action, good faith bargaining, breaches of awards and agreements, and union right of entry matters.
Union Health is a local not-for-profit health fund. We exist to serve the health needs of all union members and their families - from public servants and tradies, to nurses and ambos, and everyone in between!
Union Health is powered by TUH, one of Australia’s most trusted health funds. Thanks to their support, Union Health now protects the health of Australians from a much wider range of industries. Like TUH, we believe in fairness and treat everyone as an individual, not a number.
