About Us

The Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union fights for a fair deal for Australian workers – both at work and in the community. We believe in a fair and equal society of all, with the provision of public social services including education and health care and of dignity in retirement.

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

  • food and confectionery;
  • metal and engineering;
  • printing, design and packaging;
  • technical, laboratory, supervisory and administrative; and
  • vehicle building, service and repair.

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,  emergency transport cover, funeral benefit, 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.

For over 160 years, 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.
