The Australian Workers` Union is the union of retail workers in North Queensland. It is important that the members of the UTA have a say in your new agreement. With warm weather returning to Queensland, it`s important to be safe at work. Working in excessive heat puts your health at risk and can lead to serious illness and sometimes even death. It is important to note that you have the right to complete the job if you experience symptoms of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Not only do our nurses, LPNs and PCWs do invaluable work, but so do all the geriatric caregivers who work hard in the industry and put their own safety at risk to support some of the most vulnerable members of our society. Sign our petition to send a message: All geriatric caregivers deserve a deductible payment. Negotiations for Target Australia`s new retail agreement are about to begin. Gold Coast lifeguards do a great job of keeping bathers safe. Yet, casual lifeguards are not offered the same options as permanent lifeguards when it comes to their salary. That`s why we`re fighting for a deal that offers a fair wage increase, strong working conditions and secure jobs – they are our priority. The new agreement will set your wages and working conditions for the next few years. Download a copy of the UTA damage report below, fill it out and send it back to your AWU organizer.

Together, we can fight for a better deal – encourage a non-UTA member in your workplace to join. There has never been such an important time to be a member of UTA. .
