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). Please ensure you are paying the correct membership fee. Paying an incorrect fee can affect your industrial and professional coverage.

Please note that you will be covered by Professional Indemnity Insurance

* Once the QNMU has received your signed consent 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 QNMU Professional Indemnity Insurance.
