Our work and our workplaces are constantly changing - and often not for the better. New challenges are constantly on the horizon, and sometimes it is a challenge to just get by.

The Australian Services Union covers 130,000 members nationally. We understand your work, the unique contribution you make and what’s required to make your job fairer and better, while making sure you’re protected at work. 

Our union stands up for your rights and fair pay, and can help develop your career for faster progression. We work together with all ASU members to deliver real benefits in your workplace.

Through the Australian Services Union, workers draw on their collective strength to deliver better pay, conditions and support that is tailored to your unique needs. 

Our union sets its ambitions very high, in terms of what we can achieve for our members and the wider community. We have an innovative and creative culture, and we take on issues that matter to our members no matter how small or how large.
