Greetings and welcome to the May edition of the Australian Unions Member Benefits update. This month, ME has signed the #IStandForRespect pledge, and we provide an update on the upcoming budget. We’ve also got an update on the gender super gap from Industry Super Australia and an update on the investment markets from PartnerVest.
We also have ten double passes to see Dream Horse in cinemas to give away!
ME has signed the #IStandForRespect pledge to help eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace.
Coordinated by the Diversity Council of Australia (DCA), the zero-tolerance for sexual harassment pledge has been signed by more than 100 chief executives of major companies and organisations.
Whether you label it a women’s budget or a pink budget (please don’t), Australian Unions is calling on the Morrison government to finally deliver for women in the 2021 Federal Budget.
We’ve joined together with parent, work and business groups to put women’s economic security and safety front and centre in the budget.
Industry Super Australia has released new research that demonstrates that the typical woman is retiring with almost $60,000 less super than men – as the federal government drags its feet on fixing the gender super gap and still has not re-committed to sticking with the legislated super increase..
A year on from the start of the pandemic is a good time to reflect on what happened, and how investment markets reacted.
Australian workers are relying on the vaccine rollout to keep them safe and protect their jobs.
Frontline workers and the vulnerable people they protect deserve clarity and transparency on the rollout.
There are some excellent union roles currently listed on the ACTU Job Vacancies web page. A variety of positions are available, from organisers to industrial officers, customer service representatives and lots more.
So if you’re in the market for a great union role why not check out what’s on offer today?
Union Health is 100% member owned, which means your health insurance benefits you and other union members, not corporate profits.
Because Union Health doesn’t pay its staff commissions, and doesn’t pay out corporate shareholders or executive bonuses, premiums are kept as low as possible while providing quality cover.
Experience the inspiring true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely racehorse bred by small town bartender, Jan Vokes (Toni Collette). With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbours to chip in their meagre earnings to help raise Dream and compete with the racing elites. Their investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks and becomes a beacon of hope in their struggling community.
Starring Toni Collette, Damian Lewis, Joanna Page, Owen Teale
Directed by Euros Lyn
