Union Subscriptions for WA Branch Members

As with all not-for-profit organisations, cost increases incurred can only be covered by those who contribute to those organisations.

For your information, a Union Newsletter containing details of what we have been doing and intend to do, will shortly be sent out to members and posted on our website.

This will include further, specific details of why increases have been proposed and approved, not only by this Branch Council, but also by resolution at National council held in Sydney in November 2015.
