Working in another state 

The QNMU is a state branch of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) along with every other state in Australia.
Nurses and midwives working in more than one state or territory should take out membership with the ANMF Branch in the state or territory where you are employed for the majority of the time (primary state).  
Members who will be engaging in contracts in another state for more than 12 weeks should transfer your membership to the state you are working in. 
QNMU members who intend to work in another state must notify the QNMU in writing by sending an email to our Membership Team at [email protected] 
For more information, please contact Member Connect

Members should note:

  • Voting rights are retained in the primary state only
  • Industrial or professional services or advice provided by the secondary state would be done in consultation with the primary state or branch where relevant.
  • Should any extraordinary costs occur (e.g. legal expenses), these would be shared between the relevant branches or as otherwise arranged between them.
  • Members requiring assistance should, in the first instance, contact the ANMF branch in the State or Territory where the issue or problem arises.
