Retired Members Division

The AMWU NSW is proud to have a large and active retired members’ division. The retired members’ division advocates for the rights of senior Australians and is a great way for retired manufacturing workers to stay in touch with the union.   

The retired members’ division elects representatives to the National Conference, National Council and state council, and have a direct input into the policy, direction and activities of the union. Retired members also continue to receive a number of AMWU services including the HelpDesk, legal consultation and the ACTU members connect program.

 Membership is only $5 a year. Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10:30am on Level 2 of the AMWU building at 132 Chalmers St, Surry Hills.
