QNMU membership fees 

 
Joining the QNMU is easy and affordable.

Fees are based on your classification and an average of the actual hours you work, working out to around 1% of your income (on a tax deductible basis).

Even when compared with unregistered union alternatives the QNMU is very competitively priced once continuing professional development and our range of benefits are accounted for.

Professional Indemnity Insurance

  Please note that you will be covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance* once the Union has received your signed application form and payment of your dues. Your coverage is determined by your application - that is, if you join as a part-timer, but are working in excess of 48 hours per fortnight you may not be covered. You also need to ensure that if your circumstances change that you advise the union as soon as possible to ensure that your insurance coverage is maintained. * Independent privately practising midwives are not covered by the QNMU Professional Indemnity Insurance.
