Domestic violence is a workplace issue.

We believe in a Civil Society.
We believe that achieving a Civil Society is only possible if the work of ASU members is properly valued and respected by both employers and Government.
In 2018, over 300 workplace union meetings and 20 regional town hall meetings were held for ASU members to come together, share their ideas, and decide on what it would take for our sector to be properly valued and respected.
These proposals were then debated and endorsed at our 2018 Social and Community Services Council meeting, made up of over 70 delegates from across the sector.
This is our platform for building and supporting a truly Civil Society.
