Join thousands of other Queenslanders.


We all hope we can come to work and just do our jobs but sometimes, issues arise that are difficult to navigate on your own. Individual union support is about knowing that someone has your back in the workplace. Delegates and industrial officers can provide a second opinion and often have a good understanding from the workers point of view. They can help resolve issues on the spot or, if you are required to attend a meeting; be there to support you before, during and after.

Issues before you join?

In general the union office can only assist and advise a member about processes or issues that arise after that member has joined the union.

The union office may be able to provide advice and representation for issues that arise prior to a member joining the union in relation to sexual harassment and conversion to permanent employment. 

The Branch Secretary may approve advice on issues or processes that  predate a member joining the union but only when these issues are raised with the union at the time of a member making the application to join the union.
