ABOUT UNIONS TASMANIA

We are the peak body for unions here in Tasmania as well as the local branch of the ACTU. We represent around fifty thousand union members, across the private and public sectors. No matter your occupation or profession, there is a union for you in Tasmania. 

The Tasmanian union movement works every day towards building a better society for everyone. We believe that workers and their families are entitled to live in a decent and civil society that values fairness and equality – where everyone is afforded the opportunity to succeed.

We campaign in workplaces, in the community and in the political and political arena to affect change that raises the living standards of workers and their families. We campaign for rights at work, for decent pay, for positive social change and for workplace health and safety.

My vision for the union movement is that we are united and growing so that workers have the collective power to win on the issues that matter to them. We aim to lift the profile of unions in Tasmania so that we are a movement our members are proud of and a movement that potential members want to join.

UNION POWER! harnesses "market power" to provide practical cost-of-living benefits to union members and their families.

Union Power! is a group-purchasing service established by peak body Unions Tasmania to negotiate "bulk buy" discounts for essential, every day items.

By working with affiliated unions—which collectively represent tens of thousands of working Tasmanians—Union Power! can negotiate significant discounts for union members that would not otherwise be made available.

Union Power! will negotiate discounts for:

  • Electricity;
  • Petrol;
  • Natural Gas; and,
  • Internet services.

Union Power! agents will strike the best price from suppliers, who will be keen to tap into the customer base that unions provide.

When determining supply contracts, factors other than best-price will include ethical corporate behaviour, employment practice, safety records and the level of Tasmanian ownership/employment.

The first step in getting this pilot project off the ground is to maximise the number of people who register for Union Power. Registration is free, and union members are asked to encourage fellow members to take a few seconds to register. 

Union Power! is all about union members helping each other, and lessening the increasing impacts of cost-of-living pressures.

No-one else is going to do it for us. We need to look out for each other.
