What are my rights at work?
When it comes to work, you are entitled to healthy and safe conditions, job security and fair pay. Whether you’re starting a new job, returning to work, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or managing an existing workplace issue, the Australian Services Union is by your side. Once a member, we protect and promote you’re the rights of workers in critical areas such as:
Pay and entitlements
Our team is dedicated to ensuring our members are paid the wages they deserve. In 2020 alone, we recovered over $13 million in unpaid wages for members. Our expert lawyers can assess whether your wage and entitlements are in line with your industry award, enterprise agreement or contract.
Throughout the pandemic, the Australian Services Union has promoted the job security of our members by negotiating fair outcomes with employers, keeping members connected to their workplaces and by stopping job cuts. In 2020 alone, the Australian Services Union stopped 12,000 members from losing their jobs.
Health and safety
Union workplaces are safer workplaces. We’ll help you resolve any workplace safety issue – whether it’s a physical health and safety issue or relates to stress and other mental health hazards. You should be safe at work.
Protecting you through workplace challenges
Workplace changes can be challenging. In 2020, the Australian Services Union supported over 10,000 members through workplace changes, redundancies and finding additional work.
Your union is a democratic and worker-led organization. Union delegates and representatives work with our Union officials to better workplace safety, improve pay and conditions, and stand with members to navigate any workplace challenges they may have. The ASU provides workplace leaders with the training and support they need to empower their workplaces.
Job opportunities and career development
The Australian Services Union is by your side, every step of the way. That’s why we created ASU Jobs Connect: a free service for members. We know how challenging it is to change or lose your job or even part of your income. To ensure our members have access to job opportunities in high demand, we work with employers across the country to source available positions.
