All financial members of the TWU NSW can rest easy travelling to and from work knowing that they are covered in the event of an incident.
Our union provides this benefit to members because the NSW Liberal State Government shredded the workers comp scheme in 2012, leaving workers high and dry. This insurance also covers ACT members who are covered by Comcare.
After the Liberal State Government ripped away journey to work insurance, the TWU stepped in to make sure all financial members were covered – that’s peace of mind for me and my family.
The main benefits of our policy are as follows:
% of earnings:
75% – 13 weeks
50% – 39 weeks
Monthly (2 weeks in arrears & 2 weeks in advance)
Scope of coverage:
DIRECT TRAVEL for the purpose of attending the COVERED PERSON’s normal place of employment to the COVERED PERSON’s normal place of residence. This includes any minor deviations which in no way increases the risk of bodily injury that would have normally arisen had the insured person travelled directly provided no cover is granted by Workers’ Compensation or the Traffic accidents act or equivalent.

WORKERS COMPENSATION REVIEWS
The NSW Government established WIRO in 2012 as part of the reform of the State’s workers compensation system.
WIRO is an independent statutory office with a variety of roles, which include dealing with issues regarding insurers as well as managing the provision of legal assistance for injured workers. We reduce red tape, time and costs for injured workers, employers and the Workers Compensation Scheme and aim to resolve disputes with claims quickly and easily.
