Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union



Emergency Transport Insurance

The Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union (AMWU) provides emergency transport insurance to all eligible financial members of the union, including immediate family, through Coverforce Insurance Broking.

This benefit is immediately payable to eligible financial members who are unable to receive financial assistance for emergency transportation through a legislated scheme, a health insurance policy or any other insurance policy.

Due to the nature of state schemes, this benefit is not eligible to be claimed by members in Queensland or Tasmania.

Compensation shall be limited to a maximum of $5,000 per Insured Person / Financial Member in any one Insured Period.

This benefit is secured by an Insurance Policy, with terms, conditions, excesses and limitations.

This benefit excludes inter-hospital transportation.

Emergency Transport means: 

  • The necessary transportation by Emergency Transport, in circumstances of injury or sickness, to the nearest available hospital which is equipped to deal with the nature of the emergency; or

  • Treatment by Emergency Transport staff.

Who is Eligible?
To be eligible you must be a financial member of the AMWU to be eligible, at the time that Emergency Transport was used.  This is a member who has paid full, current dues. 
This benefit does not apply to retired members or life members.
Is my family covered?
