PPTEU partners with ADA Australia
The PPTEU has had the backs of plumbers and their families since 1850. It’s core union business to look out for the safety and wellbeing of our members, both on and off the job.
At the PPTEU, we want all members to have access to the right information and right support, to foster supportive workplaces, a change in culture and attitudes around mental health, drugs and alcohol, and for all members and their families to be safe and well.
That is why we are working with ADA Australia to provide you with the PPTEU Support and Learning Hub ensuring valuable content and training is easily accessible across all platforms, for all members. It will provide you and your families with access to information that increases awareness and takes you through positive personal practices to help ‘ride out’ challenging times. This guidance, support and information will help PPTEU members understand and recognise their own mental health and stress responses, and assist them with positive coping strategies.
We encourage every member to make use of this opportunity, and to be always safe and always well.
If you or someone in your family needs support or guidance with any of the matters presented, please contact us and find out how your union can help.
Stay safe, stay strong.
