The Australian Services Union was formed on July 1, 1993 and is one of the largest unions in Australia. It has ten state branches and a membership of more than 140,000 and growing.
The ASU National Office serves as a coordinating body for the state branches as well as its many regional offices. While the branches deal directly with the industrial needs of our members, the national office communicates, coordinates national campaigns and industries and acts as the administrative ‘glue’ for the union.
In 2010, the Victorian Authorities and Services Branch and the Tasmanian Authorities and Services Branch amalgamated to become the ASU Victorian and Tasmanian Authorities and Services Branch.
