Union Shopper works with the majority of unions throughout Australia to provide members with tangible benefits that complement their union membership. Just as all union organisations strive to get members working together to improve their workplace, Union Shopper combines all of the buying needs of members to increase our bargaining power with businesses to provide welcome savings. In many cases it’s where you’d usually shop, just with a better deal.
In late August 2016, Union Shopper was recently featured on Channel 9 News when they ran a story regarding discounts and savings. For those of you who missed it please see the link below.
