Fees

Without resources United Voice cannot work to improve the lives of our members. Our resources must also keep pace with costs. Each year the United Voice Executive considers fees for the next year.

The new fees, which apply from 1 July, 2016, include an increase to ensure we can keep pace with rising costs.The weekly increase for members paying the full standard fee will be 35 cents. Lower increases apply for members on lower incomes.

*Union fees are fully tax deductible.

United Voice Direct Debit Service Agreement

On receipt of your completed Membership Application Direct Debit form the Union will commence deductions on the next Direct Debit run.

The Union will ensure to keep your original Direct Debit form in a secure environment. Any information, such as bank details that you supply, will be treated as confidential.

The Direct Debit facility is not available on all bank accounts. If you are unsure if you have the correct type of account please contact your bank or the membership department who will advise you accordingly.

The amount that will be deducted from your account is the current fortnightly amount. The Union’s fees will be revised from time to time. If there are any changes to the Union’s fee structure this will be published in the Union’s branch magazine.

Please ensure that there are sufficient funds in your account to cover the fortnightly membership fees as it is the banks policy to charge both yourself and the Union a dishonour fee if there are insufficient funds to cover this transaction.

The Union will endeavour to contact you if your Direct Debit is rejected by the bank for any reason. If the Union is unable to contact you, you will be placed onto an appropriate billing account and an invoice will be sent to you for payment.

If at any time you wish to resign from the Union this must be done in writing to the Secretary of the Union. All Direct Debits will cease from the time of the receipt of the resignation letter by the Branch.

If you have any problems or require any further information, do not hesitate to contact the Union to discuss.
