ETU working to support members throughout the coronavirus challenge

Bruce Fan - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus, we are facing unprecedented circumstances. Our daily lives are changing to fight this pandemic and the disruption will only keep increasing before things return to normal.

Through these uncertain times, the ETU is here to support you throughout the difficult period Australia now faces.

This is a time when we must all stay calm, get the facts, and listen and respond to the advice of government and health experts.

To ensure the ETU functions at full capacity, we have revised our office working arrangements, effective immediately.

Our aim is to provide members with a constant range of services, while implementing sensible social distancing as advised by health authorities.

All ETU officials, organisers and staff will continue to perform their duties throughout this event.  If you are concerned about your rights at work regarding the coronavirus pandemic, please refer to our previous email or click here for more information.

All ETU organisers continue to work full-time and are available to members. Our legal, communications, membership and administrative staff are all available and remain on deck working for members.

How to contact the ETU

  1. Contact your ETU organiser directly by email or phone. Please see the attached organiser contact list.
  2. Email etunsw@etunsw.com.au – your message will be directed to the staff member best placed to assist you. This is the preferred and most efficient method of contacting the ETU admin office.
  3. Call the Sydney office number (02) 9267 4844. Only call this number if urgent or you are unable to contact your organiser or email the office.

This number will be answered, and your message taken and directed to the staff member best placed to assist you. If the line is engaged or rings out, we ask that you are patient and either email us or leave a message.

The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic are challenging and still developing day-by-day.

There are many questions still to be answered about how this event affects ETU members, our industries and our work sites.

The ETU will inform members of relevant developments as new information becomes available. Stay tuned and please use the above methods to contact the union if needed.
