Extra Member Benefits
Union members win
By being a member of your union, you are building a better life.
Being part of your union is about having a voice at work so you can speak out about the things that affect you. Things like fair wages, hours of work, time off for when you get sick or want to take holidays didn’t just happen: they came about because union members made them happen.
And now we keep working as a group to have a better working life.
Good pay and conditions are important not just at work: they are important to our lives. Having good conditions means we can do the things we enjoy, spend time with family and friends, and look after each other. It also means we can protect services to the community and the many things that make Queensland a great place to live.
Union membership is fully tax deductible. As well as that, Together members have access to great value added benefits like discounts on goods and services via Union Shopper, great advice and support getting the best home loans deal via Union Shopper Mortgage Brokers, free legal consultations from a range of excellent providers, specialised private health care from TUH and banking with ME Bank.
Union Shopper is all about ensuring members receive great value for money on whatever you are looking to buy. At no cost to you, we help save time and money, without the hassles and headache.
Be part of the savings and make the most of this valuable money saving service. Before you make another purchase, remember Union Shopper and challenge us to find you a better deal.
Step 1 Decide what you want to buy and be ready to purchase.

Union Health - It's time for a fairer health fund
As a member of Together, you and your family members have automatic access to Union Health.
If you’re ready for your health to be treated fairly, it’s time to take a closer look at Union Health.
Union Health has been formed to serve the needs of our members, and it’s backed by one of Australia’s most trusted funds, TUH. In the latest nationwide Ipsos survey of health funds, TUH Health Fund was ranked first by members for trustworthiness, satisfaction, loyalty and likelihood to recommend. With the support of TUH, Union Health will follow in their footsteps and strive to become the fairest health fund for all union members.
More hospitals to choose from
If you’re going into hospital, not only do Union Health have a larger choice of hospitals, they also offer a higher percentage of services with no out-of-pocket expenses than BUPA, NIB or MEDIBANK (2017 State of the Health Funds Report).
A belief in quality
Union Health cover cardiac on all hospital products and have a range of quality products that will suit you through your different life stages.
A health fund that's 100% member owned
Union Health believe in acting in the best interests of their members, not shareholders. That’s why they don’t pay their people commission, so you get fair, genuine advice. And because they’re 100% member-owned, their profits go straight back to you in the form of better products and services.
