Professionals Australia exists to improve the working lives of our members, including those employed in the veterinary sector.

Unfortunately, Australia’s veterinary industry is plagued by long hours, poor pay and inadequate work-life balance. The often poor working conditions of the industry at present contribute to low retention rates, high levels of burn out and mental health issues.

As your union, PA is committed to highlighting and addressing the issues affecting the working lives of our members and safeguarding the collective interests of the profession. We will work together with our members to change the profession and industry for the better.

As a member of Professionals Australia, you will benefit from:

Industrial and legal representation and advice - Our industrial team offers expert information, advice and representation on your rights at work.

Your voice in negotiations - Professionals Australia is a union run by members for members. We are a voice for you, your profession and your industry with government and key industry players.

Campaign for your conditions – as a union, we exist to improve your working conditions, educate you and your employer on your rights at work and ultimately, increase your rates of pay.

Maximise your pay - Professionals Australia conducts a remuneration and employment salary survey every year, providing members with the most comprehensive analysis of pay rates in the veterinary industry.

Career services - Members can access a range of services, resources and guidance from our team - from interview training to LinkedIn and resume reviews.

Member Advantage - Make your pay go further with significant discounts on groceries, fuel and consumer goods. Members can even save money on insurance and financial advice.
