A union is only as strong as its members, and we are proud to be Australia’s strongest union. Since 1888, we have been winning a better deal for our members across the transport industry, and with you marching alongside us, we can achieve even more as we move into the future.

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.
TWU NSW members have access to in-house safety training, helping members to build safer and stronger workplaces. You have access to expert industrial advice and assistance, and can represent you when you need expert help. Our legal team specialises in workplace issues within the transport industry. Whether it’s 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!
