About the NUW
NUW members work for all sorts of employers, from multinational corporations to small businesses, in a diverse range of .
We also come from many regions and places around the world, however, we are united by a set of common values and interests. These interests include fighting for a better standard of living for all our members and empowering our fellow members to have control over their working lives. We uphold the shared values of solidarity, equality, social justice, dignity and unity.
It is important that NUW members campaign and fight together no matter how we are employed, whether permanent, casual, part time, contract. We must stand together because EVERY WORKER COUNTS. Find out more about our campaign Jobs you can count on!
We realise our interests and values through collective bargaining; fighting for safer workplaces, and campaigning for a fairer and more just community for us, our children and future generations. We have demonstrated this through our proud history, which includes being at the forefront of the creation of Australia’s contemporary system of universal superannuation.
We also recognise that we are part of a global union movement fighting to empower workers everywhere. Part of the way we contribute to the global movement is through our strong support of the International Union of Food and APHEDA – Union Aid Abroad.
