Why Should I Join?
Your TWU membership is your ticket to secure jobs, good pay, safety on the job and respect from the bosses.
By joining TWU NSW, you have the security of knowing your workmates have your back – and you are sending the message that you care about secure fair wages and conditions, job security, respect and safety at work.
Becoming a member gives you a voice in the issues that matter – in your yard, in the community, and in the halls of power. Employers and governments have never simply handed out improved working conditions or entitlements. Benefits like overtime, sick leave, holidays, pensions, rostered days off, redundancy agreements, and the weekend – these were all won by union members working together.
As TWU member you have the access to in-house safety training, which helps build safer and stronger workplaces. The TWU provides its members with expert industrial advice, assistance and professional representation. Our legal team specialises in workplace issues within the transport industry. Whether its unfair dismissals, underpayment claims, or negotiating a fair workplace agreement, we’ll have your back.
Your TWU NSW membership also entitles you to a host of exclusive Member Rewards, including journey insurance, loans and banking, a wide range of product discounts, and so much more. Plus, special products, services and exclusive deals are frequently offered to TWU NSW members by our partners and sponsors. Click here to check out all our Member Rewards!
