Thankfully most workers will go their whole careers without requiring industrial advice or assistance but if the unlikely occurs it’s important to know that there is someone you can contact.
The dedicated and experienced industrial staff at Together are available between 8:30am and 5:00pm (Monday- Friday) by calling 1800 177 244.
The union understands there are occasions where members will require ongoing advice or assistance. In these instances, we would advise members to complete an Industrial Assistance Form.
Completion of the Industrial Assistance Form allows the member to provide all of the relevant details of their workplace issue, as well as relevant documentation, to a member of the union's industrial staff. Relevant documents may include correspondence from their employer regarding discipline or warnings, policies relating to their issue, or medical certificates.
Providing sufficient information on your issue and supporting documentation allows our industrial staff to provide the member with advice and assistance that is both timely and accurate.
You may choose to fill in one of these forms either by downloading the form to print and submit via fax or post, or you can complete the form online.
You can download the Industrial Assistance Form.
This administrative form is necessary to ensure that accurate and relevant advice and assistance can be provided to all members who it as efficiently as possible.
After receipt of your form, you will be contacted by a member of your union's industrial staff within four working days. If your matter is urgent, or you have a meeting date or deadline approaching, please complete the section on the form marked "Have you got an urgent meeting date/deadline about this issue? If so when?" This will allow for every effort to be made to assign your matter to an industrial officer as quickly as possible.
It is important that all members familarise themselves with our Industrial Assistance Policy before filling out an Industrial Assistance form.
