JOURNEY INSURANCE

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.
