Now more than ever, working people need a strong independent and collective voice. 

UnionsACT is the largest independent voice for working people in the Canberra region. 

You can read our archive of media releases and public statements here, and stay up to date with some of the key issues facing working people and the broader ACT community.

It starts with you.

Unions are workers who come together to have a collective voice – about their workplaces and their community. 

Joining together allows working people in unions to build a better future, improve our living standards and make working conditions better for all.

Unions are the simple idea that working people have strength in numbers.
