What Are Australian Unions

Lee Anderson

We are here to fight by your side. With over a hundred years in battle, we have taken action to create a better work environment for everyone in Australia. We are just like you, and we know how important sick pay, medicare, paid parental leave, high wages, safety work laws, and such are. Those are our fundamental rights as Australians, and at Australian Unions, we are committed to ensuring that the workforce of Australia, us, are appropriately treated and righteously.

Mission and Vision of Australian Unions

We stand by the belief that the working force is not commodities. We are people and not objects that can easily be replaced, which is why we stand together. We continuously fight for worker rights that will benefit not only the current generation but also the future. We are enabling change in our society. Moreover, we help one another achieve success.

 

Why Should You Join Australian Unions

We are a union with over 2 million members working together to achieve the change that we want to see. We fight for better working conditions and justice for mistreatments. With that said, you will be creating a brighter future for your family by joining us in our battle. We are also a great support system. If you have any concerns regarding your job, we are the people you can go to. You can trust us that we will help you. All union members have access to legal representation. In addition to that, your wage will be higher, and you will be given cheaper commercial rates. Moreover, we accommodate your job, and our membership fees are adjusted for you.

Some of the Australian Unions Achievements

Unfair Dismissal Protection

 

We recognize that work institutions wrongfully and mercilessly remove workers from their jobs, which is why we fought against this. In 1971, a worker had experienced this unjust treatment, and the Australian Union fought on his behalf to the Conciliation and Arbitration Commission.

 

Equal Pay for Women

 

We are against gender discrimination and acknowledge the existence of the gender pay gap. This has been an issue that dates back all the way to 1949, but in 1969, the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission finally adopted the principle of equal pay for women.

 

Sick leave

 

Workers are human beings first. We all get sick, and it is not right for you to turn up to work or worry about pay while you are ill, which is why we have campaigned for this. Workers also need to worry about their health, and they need access to better sick leave conditions.

 

These are just some of our greatest achievements, but it is enough to know what are Australian Unions and see the changes that we make in our country. Join us and let us fight for a brighter future in the workforce of Australia.
