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.
