Stand with us for a strong future
The Plumbing Trades Employees Union fights for the rights and benefits of our members in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.
The fight for fair wages and allowances, good conditions, safe workplaces, proper licencing and registration, and the maintenance of high-quality skills and standards in our industry goes on every day. It's one we've been in since 1902. Over the years the PTEU has won the right to better wages and conditions for our members through enterprise bargaining agreements, awards and site agreements.
Important Union Information
MICHAEL DALEY AND LABOR HAVE COMMITTED TO A:
- MECHANICAL SERVICES PLUMBING LICENCE
- MEDICAL GAS LICENCE
- FIRE PROTECTION INSPECT AND TEST LICENCE
In a massive win for Plumbers Union Members the ALP has committed to licence our trade. We all know how critical mechanical services work is to the health and safety of our community; especially after the tragedy of Bankstown Hospital.
Mechanical services plumbers deserve a licence just like sanitary plumbers and sprinkler fitters. Now Labor agrees. While the Liberal Party have sat on their hands since Bankstown, Labor has agreed to act.
Additionally, Michael Daley has agreed to the creation of a Fire Protection Inspection and Test Licence. Union members know that if a fire protection system isn’t tested a maintained by skilled and licensed people you can end up with another Grenfell Tower.
Again, Labor has agreed.
This is a huge win for Plumbers, Sprinkler Fitters, The Plumbers Union and our State.
I ask you to consider this information when you cast your vote in the election on Saturday.
