Check out Union Shopper: How union members can get discounts on goods and services

Union Shopper was established over 45 years ago by the Queensland Teachers Union, and quickly grew to where it is today. Now operating as a national service, Union Shopper provides benefits to over 86 union branches with a collective membership of over 800,000 members.   


Fully endorsed by the ACTU, Union Shopper has grown to become the number one union benefits program within Australia.  This is something the entire union movement can be proud of.
