Trans-Pacific Alliance

In September 2012, the Transport Workers’ Union of Australia (TWU) and the Transport Workers’ Union of America (TWUA) signed the Trans-Pacific Transport Union Alliance, signalling our intention to stand together to fight for secure jobs with decent pay and conditions for transport workers, both here in Australia and in America.

TWU National Secretary, Tony Sheldon, said that ‘“Workers are coming together across borders and oceans to share ideas and campaigns like never before. The Trans-Pacific Transport Alliance will provide a powerful tool for transport workers’ rights now and into the future.”

TWUA International President, James P. Little, also commented: “The Trans-Pacific Alliance is about two proud unions sharing our knowledge and resources for the betterment of our members. The TWU in America and Australia will be working closer together to get the best for our members and their families.”
