About Employment Register
The Union has moved quickly to establish an employment register in response to the economic downturn. The scheme is designed to help our members find employment as quickly as possible should they be unfortunate enough to be made redundant. Through our partnership scheme with employer groups we aim link employers directly with potential employees.
To register simply go to the STQ website and complete the online form. Go to www.stqld.com.au
and click on the "Services" tab - then you can scroll down to "Employment Register".
if you have any enquiries regarding the above please contact the Plumbers Union on 07 3844 8433 or email email@example.com
