Water and Ports President Patrick Walsh
Transport President Ben Kensington
Hunter Water President Matt Dries


We are one of the fastest growing unions in the country. As a union we have proud tradition of mobilising, campaigning, and even dancing to win fairness and equality for all workers. We won equal pay for the community and disability sector, winning pay rises of between $200 and $650 per week for every single worker in the sector.

We continue in this tradition today as we campaign for fair pay and decent conditions - right now we're campaigning for portable training and entitlements, and leading the charge for universal paid Domestic Violence Leave.

I am proud to be the Secretary of our Union and am excited about the changes we will make together.

Angus McFarland
Branch Secretary


Our Union has the resources to make sure that every member is represented if she needs support in her workplace. We have a growing network of ASU workplace delegates who are dedicated to stopping workplace issues before they happen- but if they happen we are ready with our Member Assistance Line on 02 9310 4000.

Members are ‘union’ covered from the time they leave home to the time they return, with our Journey and Professional Indemnity Insurance.

I am proud to be the Deputy Secretary of our Union as we support members throughout their working lives.

Judith Wright
Deputy Secretary
