There is power in a union
As well as the bargaining power that comes with working with 47,000 members to improve pay and conditions for everyone in the entertainment industry, you can feel confident knowing you're always protected at work — or while looking for work — with insurance, legal advice, representation, guidance, support and counselling.
Plus, a whole heap of benefits and discounts to enjoy.
You're covered for insurance
Rates and Agreement access
