Member Benefits

Joining the AMIEU is the best way to make sure you and your co-workers have the most up-to-date information, the strongest representation, and the best chance at a safe, secure future.

Better Pay and Conditions

Union workers on average get paid 25% more than non-union workers (yes, really!), and have their disputes resolved faster.

When you join the union, you empower yourself and your co-workers to speak with one, loud voice. This gives you leverage at the bargaining table to negotiate the kind of pay rises and great conditions you deserve.

Workers on their own can be ignored. Workers standing together get results — and the statistics don’t lie. Join the union if you want a better workplace.

Legal Protection

Dismissed unfairly? Harassed at work? We have your back and we will fight for you.

Union members have access to the finest legal representation. To fight these battles on your own would cost you thousands of dollars just to be heard.

Support When You’re Injured

Your union membership automatically includes a To And From Work Benefit so that you won’t lose out on pay if you have an accident. Get the details.

We also provide an Emergency Transport Benefit that covers ambulance costs for you and your family so that you’re not out of pocket. Read more about that here.

Great Tools at Cost Prices

Union members get exclusive access to the industry’s best quality tools at cost prices. We buy the finest and we pass the savings on to you. Click here for a catalogue and a price list.
