Greetings and welcome to the October edition of the Australian Unions Member Benefits update. This month we have savings tips from ME, investment advice from PartnerVest and an introduction to Union Shopper.
We’re also giving away a $50 Gift Card from the Official Australian Unions Store.
‘Do I really need it?’ That’s the question Australians are being encouraged to ask, with research showing one in three people are paying for subscription services they don’t use.
Whether it’s casualised jobs with less rights, labour hire that underpays for the same job, part-time work without meaningful guaranteed hours, or years of low pay growth, insecure work is a serious problem for our community.
We all know how important saving for retirement is, but let’s face it, figuring out what to do with your non-super assets can be a headache: what to investing in?, how much to contribute or withdraw?, and even just remembering to make these bank transfers once you’ve managed to figure everything out. All these decisions are critical steps that can fall through the cracks of an already busy life.
The ACTU is proud to endorse Union Shopper. Union Shopper is 100% union owned and has been operating for over 45 years with an all benefit to members ethos.
‘On the Job’ is a podcast all about making your work life better.
