Your Union for Farm Workers

We feed you.

We are the workers who pick the fruits and vegetables we all eat. Many of us work in Coles and Woolworths supply chains and have experienced visa insecurity, exploitation, harassment, racial discrimination, and wage theft.

We are organising to shine a light on the horticulture industry in Australia and beyond. We have already won significant advancements through labour hire regulation, seasonal worker programs between Australia and Vanuatu, and our visa amnesty campaign. Most importantly we are on the ground organising farms across the country to ensure farm workers are paid fairly and treated with respect. 

United Workers Union is our union for farm workers in Australia.   

UWU represents over 150,000 workers from all walks of life across Australia.  Throughout our history, we’ve shown when working people come together, we win.

We fight hard for jobs you can count on, decent pay and conditions, and respect at work. Your union is here to help you, we provide a range of quality services, benefits and representation when you need it.

BECOME A DELEGATE

Stand up, Speak out.

A union delegate is another union member just like you. They have a job to do every day, and they answer to the same management that you do. The key difference is that a union delegate has training, tools and protections to help you and other members solve problems at work!

Join the union for Farm workers!

Standing together, we can change our workplaces.

Better Pay and Conditions

Union members stand together for better pay and conditions, respect, and job security.

Australian workers who are union members earn on average $250 more every week.

Back up and Support at Work

When you face poor treatment – like unfair dismissal, safety issues or harassment at work it’s important to be union.

At worksites across the country UWU Delegates, leaders and Health and Safety Reps have your back.

Training, Community & Information

Members have access to exclusive training and development designed to support you at work.

Being union also gives you access to a community of workers and expert information when you need it.

Join a Movement that Wins

When you’re union, you’re part of a national movement with a long history for standing up for what is right.

If you want a fairer Australia, joining your union is the best way to make a difference.
