2. We protect each other!

Teachers and ATs working in school are supported by our Union whenever they need help or assistance.

You can call our Union and speak to someone privately about legal issues, work issues or workers compensation.

3.We have always worked together!

Australian Unions have been fighting alongside First Australians for over 100 years. In 1911 Unions and Aboriginal workers went on strike for equal pay. In 1965 the North Australian Workers Union supported Vincent Lingiari strike for Native Title Rights.
