Trade Unions

Gow-Gates has been advising the trade union movement for over 20 years, working closely with unions to implement comprehensive and cost effective insurance programs that protect unions’ assets, employees and members.

Gow-Gates’ integrity and attention to detail is reflected by the open, equitable and transparent relationships we share with our union clients.

Honesty, trust and mutually aligned values, combined with a deep understanding of the issues that confront trade unions, assist us to provide a high level of service to unions and their members.

“In 2007, Gow-Gates undertook a review of our then insurance arrangements and, in discussion with us, analysed and assessed our needs…We were ultimately able to achieve substantial savings with an expanded and increased level of cover.

Our ongoing relationship has continued to deliver good value, security and a high degree of financial comfort. Recently, Gow-Gates was able to secure for our Union affordable cover for a unique property asset where only a small number of insurers operate.”

“Gow-Gates’ understanding of our industry has been of the utmost assistance. It is refreshing to deal with a service provider who understands our structure and operations.”

Stephen Thompson, Director of Finance
