The National Union of Workers in Australia has launched a Community membership scheme, costing just a dollar a week. It aims to bring labour and community activists together.

The move is part of a general turn towards social movement unionism by unions across the world. It aims to join unions and social movements into broad coalitions and united fronts for social justice, such as that formed by the United Democratic Front in South Africa to combat apartheid.

Unite in the UK has also launched a community membership scheme, and Resolution 16 of last year’s AFL-CIO convention called for the development of labour and community partnerships.

Benefits of Joining

You can become a community member of the National Union of Workers and be an active participant in our campaign for Jobs you can count on!

The NUW campaigns strongly in workplaces. The Union also aims to drive progressive political and community change for all working people. Secure, sustainable jobs with dignity come from organising through all these networks – and you can help set a new agenda, one that is about people and not just profit.


Becoming a NUW community member means that you can help build and have a say in our campaign – Jobs you can count on – which is a whole-of-Union and community–based campaign.

  • HAVE YOUR SAY in NUW policy proposals and community actions
  • GET ACTIVE with Union training and community organising
  • SEEK HELP in looking for work in NUW industries
  • LEARN MORE about NUW industrial campaigns

Being an NUW community member means that you support the Union values of: EQUALITY – DIGNITY – RESPECT for all workers.

UNITY IS STRENGTH

As a community member, you support NUW industrial members in their campaigns to improve their say in their workplaces.

Whilst having access to NUW resources to help you campaign in your own community, you will also contribute community dues of $1 per week or $50 per annum, which will help the NUW community program grow.
