Below we have created a list of the major Unions in Australia including info from their about page and a direct link to their site. 


The Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union represents over 130 000 workers in all areas of manufacturing, including: food and confectionery; metal and engineering; printing and packaging; technical, supervisory and administrative areas; and vehicle building.

If you work in manufacturing, we can help protect your rights at work.



The Australian Workers’ Union is the nation’s oldest and largest blue-collar trade union representing over 135,000 working men & women and their families.

Since our formation in 1886 we have a proud record of standing up for working families from all walks of life, today our members live and work in all states and territories. The AWU employs more than 200 officials in our 45 offices to ensure that all of our members get a fair go at work.

Our Union stands up for working families by ensuring that our members get the pay, conditions, safety and respect that they deserve.

Not only do we stand up for our members rights at work we also work hard to ensure all working Australians get a better deal as well through our many political and community campaigns.

For over 120 years the AWU has campaigned to make Australia a better place to live and work, our history is a rich and colorful as the history of Australia itself and by bringing together our 135,000 members through our union we know that we will all be Stronger Together.

Our Union started in 1886 representing shearers and miners and today we have grown to be Australia’s most diverse union representing workers in the manufacturing, steel, aluminium, glass, oil & gas, aviation, agriculture, construction, state public services, local government, health, plastics, hospitality, food, paper, resources, aquaculture, events and racing industries.


The ETU is the Electrical, Energy and Services Division of the Communications, Electrical, Electronic, Energy, Information, Postal, Plumbing and Allied Services Union of Australia (CEPU).

We represent Electrical, Electronic and Communications workers across the country. With approximately 55 000 workers represented by the Electrical Division and approximately 100 000 workers represented by the CEPU as a whole, makes us one of the biggest trade unions in Australia.

Members in the Electrical division are represented by the National Office based in Rosebery NSW, as well as State based offices and many regional offices. There are 70,000 members in the electrical division and we employ around 125 full time staff and officials.

The ETU works hard to increase and protect the wages and conditions of our members on a daily basis. [/learn_more]



The CEPU national union was forged out of four unions who covered workers in three essential industries; Electrical, Communications and Plumbing.
