Your membership card
Your Membership Card is valuable to you. When you receive it keep it in your wallet or purse. It has our Union’s telephone number and website address on it should you need it. For those members who don’t have a Drivers Licence, it can be used as a means of identification.
The card is valid whilst you maintain your financial status, it is not the date to which subscriptions are paid.
Financial members will receive a new card every year providing that they do not fall into arrears.
the fact that a member has received a card indicates that they were financial at the time of issue, but it remains the responsibility of the member to maintain their financial status with the Union in order to validate their membership.
the card shows your membership number which identifies you should you be telephoning our Membership Records Section or writing to the Union.
Do not send your Membership Card with subscription payments, we have an account form for that purpose.
If you have not received a membership card –
- Are you financial?
- Have you changed your address?
- Have you changed your name?
- Have you changed your place of employment?
If you have any inquiries, please call 1300 478 679 and ask for Records.
