Incolink celebrates 30 years

Posted on Oct 20, 2019

In 1988 Incolink was created to protect the benefits of workers in the building and construction industry. In 1989 we celebrated the establishment of the offices and hired the first staff.

As a joint enterprise of employer associations and unions the board reflects these two distinct groups. Together, the members of the board have worked to meet the needs of the industry and increased the benefits of belonging to Australia’s largest redundancy fund.

Here we are 30 years later, still safeguarding your redundancy entitlements, ensuring important insurances and delivering essential health and wellbeing services to you and your family.

From the Incolink family to yours wishing for another safe and happy 30 years.
