Workplace Issues

Unions organise workers to act collectively to build power and use that to improve working conditions and salaries.

Unions also advocate for workers in the area of health and safety at work.

Being a union member gives you access to expert and timely industrial advice and support through our Industrial Officers and industry partners.

Enquiries from members are responded to immediately.

The IEU also receives enquiries from non-union members when they find themselves in a position of actual or potential conflict with an employer. 

Our core business is taking care of our members, but we do offer non-members with a pre-existing issue the opportunity to join. These cases and the level of assistance they receive are assessed individually by the General Secretary. A minimum of three months in arrears of union fees must be paid on sign-up in order to proceed.
