Union membership fees (but not donations) are tax deductible.
Supporters who are not eligible to join (such as those not working in the retail or fast food sectors) can select Solidarity Supporter and choose the monthly financial contribution they wish to make to our work. Supporters who want to make a financial contribution or donation other than on a monthly basis should contact us for other options (firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 723 398).
Please note, during the application process you will be asked to complete details about your employer, and other identifiers which enable us to undertake our work as your union. Those fields (other than your basic contact details) are not required for Solidarity Supporters as you will not be formally joining our union.
