A Union for Queenslanders

The Australian Workers’ Union is the nation’s oldest and largest blue-collar trade union representing over 100,000 working men and women and their families.

Queensland workers played a key role in the formation of the Union, and Queensland is still the AWU's largest branch.  AWU members work across almost the entire Queensland economy - from mining to manufacturing, construction and public services.
