RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Trade unions

Trade unions have been part of Australia's industrial relations system since it was established nearly a century ago. Unions are representative organisations that campaign on behalf of their members to achieve the best possible working conditions, and which represent employees in negotiations and disputes. We also lobby government in relation to a variety of issues including tax, childcare, and social justice matters.

 

The benefits in joining your union?

We can represent their members in a number of areas, including:

         Negotiating the terms and conditions of awards, enterprise agreements or Australian Workplace Agreements (AWAs) with employers;

         Investigating suspected breaches of award or underpayment of wages;

         Health and safety and workers compensation issues;

         Unfair dismissals;

         Redundancies;

         Sexual harassment and discrimination claims;

         Superannuation;

         Industrial disputes.

These matters often involve dealings with parties such as industry bodies, employer associations or the government, or representation in the Industrial Relations Commission, Equal Opportunity Commission, or the courts.

In addition to our industrial role, the AMIEU will also provide other benefits for our members that may include discounts on various goods and services, and access to legal and financial advice.
