Over the past two months the USU has released four updates to remind workers in NSW Local Government of the additional rights and benefits our members have over non-members in the 2017 NSW Local Government (State) Award.

This update provides a brief summary of those rights and benefits, as well as including some information regarding insurance provided by the USU to our members to cover Journey Claims, since the previous O’Farrell government stripped away long standing access to Workers Compensation for workers who are injured, travelling to and/or from work.
