The primary benefit of joining a union is not something you can see, or touch – it’s the feeling that comes with joining a collective movement striving to improve the lives of working men and women, joining the centuries old fight for a better deal, for equality and respect at work.
The labor movement builds communities — it’s what unions do and it is what your TWU is striving to do every day.
Beyond the defense and promotion of individual members’ rights, your TWU is fighting to provide a collective voice for all members.
Unions are at their best when they are holding the power of management in the workplace to account.
We are at our best when we are standing shoulder to shoulder with transport workers demanding the right to not only a seat at the negotiating table but to be the decision-makers in their workplaces to deliver better pay, better conditions and a better deal for them, their mates and their families.
