Union fees are tax deductible, so you can save some of your union fees back by claiming them on your tax return. A statement from the HSU will be sent to you each year telling you how much you have paid in fees.

The union offers a range of payment options. Members can pay their fees using:

  • Direct debit – the payment is taken fortnightly from the designated savings or cheque account;
  • Statement payment – members using this option receive a quarterly statement from the union and can pay their fees by cheque, money order, credit card or BPay;
  • Phone – members can call 1300 468 679 and pay with their credit card over the phone.

Direct debit is:

  • Secure – only the authorised membership fees will ever be deducted from your account.
  • Smart – don’t risk losing your membership. Paying by direct debit means you never risk losing the industrial, professional and legal protection you need.
  • Convenient – your payments are deducted automatically, so you don’t have to waste time posting forms or supplying credit card details over the phone.
  • Confidential- paying your fees direct from your account means your HSU membership is your business, not your employer’s.
