1. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
United Workers Union (UWU) represents over 150,000 members across Australia, making us one of the largest and strongest Unions. We represent and protect workers in a range of industries, including:
- Food and beverage
- Manufacturing and logistics
- Education, health and aged care
- Casinos, farms, hospitality, cleaning, security … and more.
2. WORKPLACE PROTECTION
As a member, you will have the support of the Union if you need help with a workplace issue, such as being represented in meetings with management, getting help if you are injured at work, or receiving legal support for matters heading to the Fair Work Commission. The Union will help if you need to make or receive a workplace complaint.
Joining the union means better conditions, support when you need it and representation. It means having people on your worksite who have your back.
