Queensland is a big and proud State, which brings together some of the best of what Australia has to offer: natural beauty; heritage; and opportunity. The AWU Queensland is equally big, proud and ready for the future.

At any one time our members, workplace reps, campaign staff and officials are involved in campaigns from one end of our State to the next. Our campaigns cover a wide range of issues, industries and employers.

Whether it's a national campaign that impacts on tens of thousands of workers, or a campaign in a work site that involves less than ten workers, the AWU will be there with you.

The success of our campaign efforts relies on the active involvement of our members. When we stand should to shoulder, Union proud, it's very hard to ignore what we have to say. Just ask Howard what happens when you try to ignore what union members have to say.

For example, a full-time retail worker working weekends will lose $2,000 per year. Importantly, this decision may also pave the way for employers to argue that Sunday penalty rates and public holiday rates should be cut in other industries. The AWU has launched a campaign entitled PENALTY RATES...
