The Australian Unemployed Workers' Union (AUWU) is run by the unemployed, for the unemployed.


We work for the rights of all Australians to dignified social security and employment.

Workers who are unemployed or in insecure work struggle against three major attacks:

  1. Lack of jobs -- 17 people competing for every job vacancy
  2. Low rate of Newstart -- $360 per fortnight below the poverty line
  3. Punitive system of fines and activities -- 50% of job agencies are unfair.

A decent social safety net is in the interest of ALL workers.

The Australian Unemployed Workers' Union (AUWU) welcomes all workers, whether unemployed or in part-time or full-time employment, whether you are retired, disabled, or studying.
