Make the Switch - be strong

Negotiations have started for your pay and conditions and you and colleagues need to keep strong “in union”.

Make the Switch now from your employer provided payroll deduction to credit card or direct debit payments for your membership subscriptions and ensure you remain part of a powerful collective.

If you’re on payroll deduction politicians can cancel your membership by stopping automatic payments and that leaves you weak and exposed – unless you have made the switch to credit card or direct debit.

Making the Switch is easy, simply complete the online form here and you will be “switched” within two pay cycles to a direct method of payment such as direct debit or credit card.

For information or questions, email the membership team or call 1800 001 313
