Working in Australia comes with a set of rights provided to all professionals through various laws and awards. Often young professionals working as interns, trainees, part-time workers or in graduate programs are unaware of their rights and end up working in poor conditions and being treated unfairly.

As your union, we are committed to helping our members resolve workplace issues when they arise. Everybody faces unique challenges at work, so we provide our members with personalised support.

We offer expert workplace advice and support to our members, and when needed, representation on more serious employment law and industrial relations issues including but not limited to,

  • Review of employment contracts
  • Redundancy
  • Discrimination
  • Conditions of employment
  • Award rates of pay
  • Intellectual Property


At some point in your career, you will inevitably require help with an employment related matter. We have a team of legal and industrial experts to guide you through these traumatic issues.
