Rules

The AMWU and its members are governed by Rules registered with the Fair Work Commission, which are available here: PDF Version

The most recent alterations reflect the abolition of the full-time office of NSW Assistant Regional Secretary – Vehicle Division.

March National Council also considered a number of changes to our Rules, which have been subsequently endorsed by National Conference Delegates.  The Rule changes are: 

  1. a Rule change to correct the inconsistency in numbering in Rule 1C.  Our application to the Fair Work Commission can be found here
  2. a change to our Eligibility Rule to cover aspects of the car rental industry.  Our application to the Fair Work Commission can be found here

Further information is available to members on request by calling 1300 732 698 or email to amwu@amwu.asn.au.

Workplace Gender Equality Report 

The AMWU reports to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency, on gender equality in the workplace, specifically equal remuneration between women and men and the family and caring responsibilities of women and men are central to achieving gender equality. We have now lodged our report with the Agency for this year. 

The AMWU takes this responsibility very seriously and are striving to not only achieve this in our workplace, but in the workplaces of the members that we represent.

If you are a financial member of the AMWU, and would like a copy of our report for the 2016 - 2017 year, please email mike.nicolaides@amwu.org.au or call the AMWU Helpdesk on 1300 732 698.”
