In line with meetings held with our state Committee of Management it has been determined by resolutions agreed that the union ticket be reviewed.

The resolutions of the 29th November 2008 and 22nd February 2009 determined that the Tasmanian branch union subscriptions would increase from $7.50 a week to $8.00 full ticket and from $3.75 to $4.00 for half ticket.

The new ticket price will start from the first pay period on or after 30th July 2009.

Our union ticket has not increased since February 2006 and in light of our recent EBA outcomes with most employers and wage case decisions we see this as a very small increase to cover the increasing costs of your union’s administration.

Even with this small increase our union ticket is still one of the cheapest in the country.
