The PPTEU, along with other construction unions, employer associations and other industry partners believe that it is not in the interest of the industry and its workforce for sites to be closed down partially or fully due to Covid-19, whilst we must all maintain public and private health standards for everyone in the community.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the office is open for limited member access.
In line with recommendations with Government, we are taking preventative measures for the health and safety of the members and staff.
The office is open to members, and restrictions still apply such as 1.5 m distancing in the foyer, one member at the reception desk at a time and hygeine principles still apply.
Before coming into the office, we ask members to be patient and to use the relevant numbers listed on the home page to assist with your enquiries.
We encourage you use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the home page.
For the purchase of merchandise, this must be ordered online, using the "shop" drop down box at the top right hand side of the home page.
We apologise for the inconvenience this causes, but these measures are necessary during this unprecedented health event.
We strongly advise all members to use this web site to keep up to date with daily announcements affecting you and our industry. For general health advice on COVID- 19 you can call the Vic Government hotline on 1800 675 398 or check out their website.
