Under this section of the website you will find resources to help you navigate the PEA. In the members section you'll find expense claim reimbursements, information on the PEA's scholarship and bursary program and our grants and donations program. Collective bargaining and job action resources explain the process of collective bargaining and what to do in the unlikely event of job action. Local reps can also find resources to help them complete their job more effectively. This includes ways to welcome new members, how to take notes in investigation disciplinary meetings and more.
Forms you need
Expense Claim Forms
For all expenses claimed, please fill out an Expense Claim Form either on your computer or by hand. Expense claim forms filled out on your computer must still be accompanied by all documents (including a printed copy of the form and all related receipts) and sent to the Victoria office for reimbursements.

PEA Policy Changes
We would like to remind members that the PEA’s Travel Expense policy was revised last year to include a $15 incidental allowance. Members are responsible to include all claims they wish to have reimbursed on their expense claim form before submitting. View the PEA’s full travel expense policy and expense guidelines for further information.
The following table illustrates when members are eligible to claim the allowance:
|Lunch and dinner claimed||Claim $15|
|Lunch and dinner claimed and away overnight||Claim $15|
|Overnight – no meals (or dinner and/or breakfast only)||Claim $15|
|Multiple overnight travel days||Claim $15 per night plus $15 if lunch and dinner claimed on final day|
New Union Leave Policy
The PEA Executive has approved revisions to the PEA’s union leave policy to support the volunteer efforts of PEA members. The policy will continue union leave for time spent during normal work hours on the same basis as it has been provided, but will now provide union leave for certain types of union activity that take place where a member had previously booked vacation or had a scheduled day off. In addition, union leave may be withheld or recovered where members on union leave do not fully participate at the event for which the leave was provided for. The union leave guidelines can be viewed here.
