Why be in a union if I can be covered by an FPA?


Unions represent working people in Fair Pay Agreement negotiations. We can’t have good FPAs without resourced unions. It's important you are a member and contributing to your union so we can win good FPAs.

Additionally, higher unionised sites will always be better off – FPAs set the minimum, but do not set the maximum.  FPAs will work in favour of union members because there will be nowhere that an employer can go to undercut union members.  Lifting people up in the industry will benefit everyone, and mean we are not pitched against each other.
