COVID-19, what you need to know

In these troubled times, employers are scrambling to stay above water during New Zealand's lockdown. Some are acting honestly, and some dishonestly; it's hard to keep track of what's going on.

Unite has been working tirelessly to ensure that our members are safe and are being paid, and that our employers are compliant with the law. Click into your sector in the navigation bar above to find out more about what your employer is doing, and how much you'll be paid.


What is Unite Union?

We are a democratic community of workers who have banded together to increase the power we hold in our workplaces. Our past victories include getting rid of zero-hours contracts, defeating youth rates, and winning back tens of millions in incorrectly paid annual leave.

We've got each others' backs too, union delegates are the power-balance to unfair management. From favouritism in our workplaces, to bullying and unfair disciplinary action, Unite delegates support and fight for the rights of our members.

Why should I join?

Unite is a loud, proactive union. We ensure our members have a seat at the table and that their voices are heard in their workplaces. We work together to win better working conditions and higher pay.

Our fees are only 1.2% of gross pay with a minimum of $2/week and a maximum of $7/week ($4.25/week if your site doesn't have a collective), so join now!
