Home Owners Warranty- The Builders Collective

http://www.builderscollective.org.au/

The Builders Collective of Australia are very pleased and grateful to have the support of BANGitUP.com and are looking forward to an alliance that will be of genuine assistance to builders and contractors Australia wide. Many of us have been continually frustrated by increasingly onerous legislation put upon the industry, particularly in relation to Warranty Insurance and now CPD. This legislation has been met with virtually no resistance by the so-called peak industry bodies. We believe the industry deserves better and this is why the Builders Collective formed. We are a non-profit, national organization that can honestly represent the building industry by being free of the vested interests associated with Warranty and CPD. These vested interests have compromised the major trade associations as they have relied on Warranty and CPD for their income. On the other hand the Builders Collective has not been silent and are having an impact all over Australia, in Government and the Bureaucracy. Our staff are completely voluntary, no-one gets paid and we are all builders and contractors currently working in the industry. Our only income is from membership ($20.00) and from direct contributions to our fighting fund. This is vital to continue our work. To learn more we invite you to visit our web site and online discussion forum atwww.builderscollective.org.au. If you like what you see, then please join with us and make a real difference.

All BANGitUP members and advertisers will have the option contributing to the Builders Collective on subscription.
