Substantial Rule changes in relation to the New Union Project: on the 6th of December 2018, the Fair Work Commission issued their Decision.

We recently converted the position of NSW Regional Secretary – Vehicle Division to an honorary position, however, the Rule change neglected to deal with how the vacancy would be filled. We have subsequently lodged an application with the Fair Work Commission that provides for the manner in which the vacancy can be filled. You can read it here: attachment.

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.
