Home Loans for RTBU Members, their family and friends
Over 160 years ago a small group of Victorian locomotive drivers got together and unionised their workplace causing a ripple effect across the country. Over the coming years, rail workers everywhere started to band together to protect themselves and their workmates.
In order to promote strength through solidarity, these groups then began to merge, ultimately resulting in what is today known as the as the Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) which proudly represents 35,000 workers across the rail industry and in public transport.
The RTBU is one of Australia’s oldest unions and has an extremely proud past. It is the union that was responsible for the 1912 Brisbane Tramway Strike, the 1917 Railways Strike in NSW, the 1969 Tramways Stike in VIC – all of which turned into massive general strikes across the whole of Australia, and which were the start of significant social change which has improved the lives of all Australians.
It is with this spirit of solidarity that we have partnered with Finsure to create ‘RTBU Home Loans’ to deliver RTBU Members, their family and friends support beyond the workplace and provide access to a panel of trusted Aussie lenders with some of the best home loan offers in the country.
The service is free for those who use it and when a loan is settled, the RTBU receives 20% of the Commission that the lender pays to Finsure – a commission which would have been paid anyway. This amount is then used for things like delegate training, fighting funds, political campaigning and other activities all of which directly improve the lives of RTBU Members and their families.
If you want to get a better deal on your home loan, you can trust RTBU Home Loans.
