Unless you work in some kind of Union Utopia, chances are that you work with people who aren’t ASU members. While some people actively choose not to join the union (as is their right), the fact is that there are many non-members who are only non-members because nobody has ever asked them to join!
One of the easiest ways to build Union density (that’s the percentage of staff who are Union members) is to have a simple discussion where you invite your colleagues to join you in the union. Yep, it’s that easy!
‘But why is it important to bring my colleagues into the union?’ we hear you say. Well, no matter where you work, your power is in numbers! When it comes to raising a collective dispute, bargaining for an enterprise agreement, providing feedback on proposed changes, or battling bullying in the workplace, it is always easier and more effective when you have a whole bunch of colleagues standing by your side.
So bookmark this link and share it around – https://www.asu.asn.au/asujoin, forward this email to your colleagues (as long as that’s allowed within your workplace policies of course) and ask someone in the lunch room if they’re interested in joining you in the ASU.
If you’d like resources and/or support to help you build up ASU density and activity in your workplace, get in touch with your delegate or organiser, and if you don’t know who they are, contact
