Why Join

Why Join

The AMWU campaigns on the issues that are important to our members both at work and in the community.

In the workplace, we work hard for better pay and conditions, fair and decent treatment, and for training and job progression.

We believe all workers deserve good, secure jobs with fair wages and conditions.

In the community we have always campaigned for a better and fairer Australia for everyone. For over 160 years, we have been at the forefront of campaigns that deliver for working people – superannuation, Medicare, affordable public education, annual leave, long service leave, parental leave – these are the things we believe in and fight to defend.

Week in, week out, we continue to work to build an open, accepting and tolerant society that works for its people and not just for the market and the big end of town.

Joining the union means we can work with you to improve your rights at work and in the community.

The union will make sure you know your rights at work, and help you campaign for them.

4. Never Be Alone

You’ll never have to stand alone when you’re in a union – you always get back-up and support.
