Who we are

The Transport Workers Union is devoted to protecting the rights of workers in transport industries.


The TWU covers members in Aviation, Passenger Transport, Local Government, Waste, Cash in Transit and Oil and Gas.

The TWU has a long history in Queensland dating back to the late 1800’s and was originally formed as a draymans union. Over the years the TWU has earned a reputation for standing strong in the face of strong opposition from employers.

In 2010 Peter Biagini, a long term employee in the Transport Industry and former TWU QLD organiser, was elected as State Secretary of the Union. ‘We’re creating a strong, modern, united TWU that will have unrivalled power to control our destiny – and the nation’s. This union is your union, so lets work together to make our industrial power unstoppable.’

The Transport Workers’ Union of Australia – Queensland Branch is affiliated with the Queensland Council of Unions.
