When we unite, we win.

We are one of the fastest growing unions in the country.

As a union we have a proud tradition of mobilising, campaigning, and even dancing to win fairness and equality for all workers.

In 2012, we won equal pay for the community and disability sector, winning pay rises of between $200 and $650 per week for every single worker in the sector. This year, we won universal paid Family and Domestic Violence Leave - a campaign begun by ASU members over 10 years ago, now in the National Employment Standards, and accessible for 11 million workers.

We continue in this tradition today as we campaign for fair pay and decent conditions - right now we're campaigning for portable training and entitlements.

I am proud to be the Secretary of our Union and am excited about the changes we will make together.

Our Union has the resources to make sure that every member is represented if she needs support in her workplace. We have a growing network of ASU workplace delegates who are dedicated to stopping workplace issues before they happen- but if they happen we are ready with our Member Assistance Line on 02 9310 4000.

Members are ‘union’ covered from the time they leave home to the time they return, with our Journey and Professional Indemnity Insurance. I am proud to be the Deputy Secretary of our Union as we support members throughout their working lives.

Together, union members win. 

Throughout our history, and across the various industries we represent, Australian Services Union members have won better wages, conditions, and created safer, more dignified workplaces. We're on your side. And we're stronger together. Pictured above is the historic 2012 Equal Pay case the ASU won.
