Why Join?

The Australian Workers’ Union believes workers should be able to flex their collective muscles just as hard as bosses or politicians.

It’s your time, your money, your rights and we will fight for them on the picket lines and in boardrooms.

We listen to our members and believe working together is the most effective way to make a change.

We get the nuts and bolts of industrial relations and provide the technical tools needed to succeed.

Union members get 20 percent more pay than those not in a union. The best way of improving your wages and conditions is by making sure you and your workmates are AWU members

Our members have been shaping their industries for over 130 years – through superior pay, safer worksites, and secure jobs.

“Stronger together” is not just a slogan – it’s who we are.
