About

AWU members get a better deal at work.

We stand together to improve pay, conditions, and job security.

We help each other when the situation gets tough.

The history of Australia cannot be written without reference to the Australian Workers’ Union.

Since our formation in 1886, we have stood up and delivered for working families.

We began representing shearers and miners. Today our members work in manufacturing, steel, aluminium, glass, oil & gas, aviation, agriculture, construction, state public services, local government, health, plastics, hospitality, food, paper, resources, aquaculture, the beauty industry, events, and racing industries.

Our members are as diverse as the industries they work in, but we are unified by the belief that when we stand together we are stronger together.

Union fees are tax-deductible and according to ABS figures, union members earn an average of $275 per week more than non-union workers.

If you want the protection and strength that the AWU provides – join today by calling (03) 6234 6744 or by visiting our join page.
