Workers united team are rank and file members who are committed to regaining the AMWU Presence  and conditions across all sectors within the union .

Our 10 Point plan for a stronger union :

1. RESTORE MEMBERS RIGHTS TO CHOOSE AND VOTE FOR THE ORGANISERS THAT THEY WANT  TO RUN THIER UNION.

AMWU's Internal democracy has been eroded with the sacking and pushing out of elected organisers and the appointment of non elected organisers. This robs you of  your say.

2.STRONG INDUSTRY-WIDE BARGAINING.WAGES HAVE FALLEN. WE NEED A UNITED FIGHT TO RESTORE WAGES. NO MORE EBA TRADE OFFS OF HARD-WON CONDITIONS.

3. PROPER TRAINING FOR OGANISERS AND SHOP STEWARDS TO PROTECT THE AWARD AND MEMBERS' WAGES AND CONDITIONS AND TO SERVICE AND GROW OUR UNION.

4. RESTORE STATE COUNCIL WITH ELECTED MEMBERS. The AMWU'S ruling body has been stacked out with non-elected people.

5. ABOLISH THE INEFFECTIVE QUARTERLY DISTRICT MEETING AND RESTORE QUARTERLY STATE-WIDE MASS MEETINGS OF SHOP STEWARDS, ORGANISERS AND HEALTH AND SAFETY REPS.

6. PROTECTION OF SHOP STEWARDS AND HEALTH SAFETYREPS FROM VICTIMISATION AND SACKING BY BOSSES. Too many shop stewards and health safety reps have been sacked because bosses now see the AMWU as a weak union.

7. MEMBERS' MONEY MUST ONLY BE SPENT ON SERVING MEMBERS AND PROTECTING THEIR WAGES AND CONDITIONS.

8. MILLIONS OF MEMBERS' DUES SHOULD NOT BE USED TO BRIBE WEAKER UNIONS INTO  AMALGAMATION DEALS.

9. ALL MEMBERS NEED A VOTE ON ANY AMALAGAMATIONS. no secret deals behind members' backs. All divisions deserve a say,

10. BRANCH STACKING IS SPILTTING OUR UNION. THIS MISUSE OF POWER IS BULLYING AND MUST END. WE MUST UNITE.
