The Union is all of us working together for a better life.
The Finance Sector Union (FSU) is a not-for-profit organisation comprised of employees in the banking, finance, insurance and superannuation industries.
We come together to support each other and to collectively achieve improvements in our pay, conditions, and rights at work. Together we achieve things that cannot usually be achieved by individuals.
What we do
Our community influences things like fair pay for the hours you work, time off when you or someone in your family becomes unwell, or time away from work each year to relax and do the things you love with your favourite people. We also contribute to making our workplaces healthy and safe places to work and anything else that we think is relevant and important to our community.
Many of us also participate in and are active in other communities. We support and advocate for things like universal health care, domestic violence support, marriage equality and the environment.
We work together to achieve a better work life and home life balance.
You get to participate as little or as much as you want and be involved with the things you care about most.
Why we would like you to join us
Having a good membership base means we have a strong, clear and legitimate voice in our industry, our workplaces, and our communities.
As a not-for-profit organisation your membership provides the resources for the work we do across three levels:
- At an individual level we provide support and advice to members when they need it most. Our Member Rights Centre and advocacy support means you’ve got an expert in your corner when you need one.
- At a workplace level we collectively negotiate industry-leading and progressive pay and conditions. Some of our new initiatives include preventative health leave, superannuation payments while on parental leave, and paid public holidays while on Long Service Leave.
- At an industry level we lobby government and other relevant bodies to ensure the nation’s policy and legislative settings are beneficial to our members and our community more broadly.
We’ve got you covered
As a member you’re also covered by our collective journey insurance policy when you’re travelling to work and home.
