AFIA and the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) have formed a partnership to offer AFIA members access to the hugely successful VFF Workplace Relations service. This service will provide all AFIA members with expert support and advice on any current or future workplace relations issues that may affect their business.

To gain access to this service AFIA members now have the opportunity to purchase an annual subscription to the VFF Employment Handbook at the special AFIA member rate of $150.00  per annum (inc GST). As a special introductory offer, subscriptions paid now will not expire until August 2015, giving AFIA members up to 6 months free access to the VFF Workplace Relations service. 

To complement the content within the VFF Employment Handbook, AFIA members will also receive one hour of advice/service per year to assist them with their Workplace Relations issues. AFIA members simply have to call the AFIA IR Helpline 1300 662 879 to access further advice over the phone.
