THE FIGHT AHEAD! 2023 is a BIG year for our majors!

It is no secret that our transport industry is in desperate need of reform. This campaign will be pushed with the help of members in our majors…


You can read more about our Transport Reform campaign on pages 14-15!

In addition to this, the Client Claim we have served on Australia’s 40 largest retail, food and beverage manufacturers and agricultural companies, is part of our broader Majors campaign for the year… 

You can read more about the Client Claim on pages 12-13!

However, 2023 is a big year for our majors on another front. This year, the TWU will enter bargaining for several of the majors. The last two years saw a lot of action in this area; 2021 was a huge year where we fought long and hard for job security and achieving an industry first level of 15% super. 2022 saw us enforcing agreements and holding companies to account on commitments they made. 

Negotiations are due to commence, and so far, our dedicated Organisers have been out in the field, conducting yard meetings, addressing member concerns and questions, and preparing them for the fight ahead. The hard work of members over the last couple of years has laid the foundation for all that we will achieve moving forward. With bargaining this year, it is crucial that we all stand together, as we have always done. In doing this, we can, as we already have, achieve great things. 

As a member, there are things you can do to make the fight ahead stronger!

  • Start a conversation in your yard about the conditions you would like to see improved.
  • Speak to your yard matesabout joining the TWU if they have not already. There is strength in numbers!
  • Speak to your TWUOrganiser or delegate if there is anything you are unsure of. Knowledge is power!


Join the fight. Join your union.
