I joined the asu and the did Jack shit for me. Biggest waste of money and I was ready to commit suicide due to the lack of interest they showed. Not helpful at all.

Never go paid over time but asu still did nothing.

Working up to 16 hours a day and was accused of shit the company had no proof on. ASU thanks for nothing.

Everyone has a right to be safe at work and to arrive home safely at the end of the day. Yet every week four people are killed and thousands more seriously injured in Australian workplaces. Working people in their unions are fighting for improved workplace laws and safer workplaces. As part of this work, we are asking all workers to complete the safe at work survey. It only takes a few minutes and is a chance for all every worker to have a say on workplace health and safety.
