What Is A Union?

What Is A Union?

Unions are bodies that help workers organise to act for their conditions, conditions such as:

  • Wage increases
  • Safer workplaces
  • Greater equality for women
  • Improvements in hours
  • Entitlement to paid holidays
  • Entitlement to better working conditions

They also involve themselves in the community, assisting with things such as:

  • Australia 's post-war development and immigration program
  • The social security system
  • Medicare
  • Education
