We are the only union looking after your rights


Professional Pharmacists Australia is the first and only Australian union to campaign for better pay and working conditions specifically on behalf of community and hospital pharmacists. We work tirelessly on our members’ behalf to win the professional recognition, respect and reward that they deserve.

PPA members have cumulatively won increases to the PIA pay rates totalling 22% since beginning proceedings with the work value case in 2016. In real terms, this now means that employees are legally bound to pay pharmacists these new rates of pay as a minimum. They’re also required to use these new rates to calculate their employee’s allowances and penalty entitlements. 

We are currently campaigning to increase graduate pay rates.

We offer legal and industrial representation and advice


If you are dealing with a workplace issue, we are here to help. Our team of lawyers and industrial officers offer expert advice on your wages, conditions and your rights.

Professional development and member benefits


Not only does Professional Pharmacists Australia lobby the government, as a member you’ll get:

  • member-only discounts on groceries, fuel, cinema and consumer goods at some of Australia’s largest retailers.
