What is the Retired Members' Division?

The Retired Members’ Division (RMD) of the AMWU is a key community voice for the rights of retired workers. 

Retired Members have always played an important role in the AMWU, from campaigning on the rights of retired workers, lobbying on welfare and justice issues in the broader community, to providing valuable support for many of the Union's most important campaigns.

The RMD also has a seat at the table when it comes to making decisions about the direction of the union. Elected representatives of the Division hold positions on the Union’s key decision making forums such as National Conference and National and State Councils. This means retired members have direct input into the policy, direction and activities of the Union.

Why should you join?

Retirement from the paid workforce doesn't mean you have to lose touch with your workmates or with the issues that concern you.

Joining the Retired Members’ Division at the end of your working life will keep you involved and keep you active. 

Financial retired members also continue to receive a range of AMWU services including advice through the AMWU HelpDesk, a free first legal consultation and the services of the ACTU Member Connect program.

How to join - only $5 per year!

You can download a membership form here. Membership is $5 per year and is tax deductible.
