About Us

The Transport Workers’ Union is the largest collective voice for the men and women that keep Australia moving. Together, we lead the fight for a fairer transport industry and safety for all who share the roads and the skies. 

Throughout all states, across all sectors, we’re united in our fight to raise standards for all transport workers.

We’re fighting for the same pay for the same job. We’re holding wealthy clients and airports at the top of transport supply chains to account for fair rates and conditions. We’re determined to end the race to the bottom in transport and keep our communities safe while on the move in Australia.

For over 120 years, we’ve grown to represent employees, contractors and owner-operators in:

  • Oil, fuel and gas
