UNION WIN – BOQ will pay our ME Bank Rebate

Two weeks ago, after hearing from many union members about the issue, we wrote to BOQ Group Management and told them to pay our longstanding ME Bank rebate on union membership fees.

BOQ Management listened and has confirmed that they will pay our FSU fee rebate this year!

Some of you have already received your rebate in your payslip. If you haven’t received your rebate yet, you will need to raise a ticket via AssistU on the Intranet about your FSU Fee Rebate. Alternatively, you can contact payroll via pcpayroll@boq.com.au.

This is great news, and a relief for many of us who’ve been waiting for our rebate since July!

Unfortunately, at the bargaining table BOQ management are holding firm that they will no longer offer the rebate in our new BOQ Group Enterprise Agreement – as well as cutting our wages in real terms.

We all need to raise our voices and make ourselves heard and push BOQ to do better.

If you haven’t already, tell us why you deserve a fair pay increase that keeps up with the rising cost of living – unlike BOQ’s proposal for a real wage cut.

Why I deserve a fair pay increase


Bring your questions on the night and share with your colleagues. If there’s anything you’d like answered in advance, you can send your question by replying to this email and an FSU colleague will be in touch.

We look forward to sharing an evening together.

In unity,
Your FSU reps.
