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.

Digital Clear Cards.

The PPTEU membership system is transitioning to a new digital system.

This new system is part of our ongoing effort to streamline the membership experience to provide ease and convenience for our members.

Financial members of the PPTEU are now able to download their Digital Membership Card to their smartphone. The Digital Membership Card will contain all of the information that is on your plastic membership card.

Members who want to take advantage of this facility must have a current email adress attached to their membership and be able to receive emails on their smartphone.

The process to transition over to the new system is straightforward. Once you have downloaded the Digital Membership Card, in future you will simply receive an email notifying you to login and download your new Digital Membership Card to save to your smartphone.

This will also be an ideal opportunity to check your membership details and update your information if required.
