The Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union fights for a fair deal for Australian workers – both at work and in the community. We also campaign and stand up for a fair and equitable Australian society – a universal health care system, a great education and training system and dignity in retirement.

We represents tens of thousands of workers in all areas of manufacturing around Australia, including:

As union members, we work together to protect your rights at work.

The AMWU aims to ensure our members receive the pay, conditions, safety and respect they deserve at work. 

We also offer a range of services and benefits for members, including free legal representation, fee-free superannuation, discount holiday accommodation, discounts on cars, and much more.

The AMWU runs campaigns to advance our members' interests at a local, national and global level.

We campaign for a better deal at work, for the strengthening of Australian industry, and for good, secure jobs for all Australians.

In our 150 year history, the AMWU has been part of many significant improvements to the lives of working people, including the 8-hour day, paid maternity leave, rights for apprentices, family-friendly conditions, superannuation, and many more.

If you would like to start enjoying the benefits of AMWU membership you can join here, or call our HelpDesk on 1300 732 698 and speak to one of our HelpDesk team about how the AMWU can help you.
