SWU Union Contacts promote the Social Workers Union and encourage new members to join. You’ll be the first point of contact for new and existing members within your workplace.

Our National Organiser works with every Union Contact to support them in their role of being the face and voice of SWU in workplaces, universities, and placements, promoting membership and sharing SWU information. Union Contacts enable our full time Trade Union Officials to focus on direct employment negotiations.

As a SWU Union Contact you will:

  • Complete Induction Training

  • Be mentored by a National Organiser

  • Receive regular mailings and updates from SWU

  • Gain access to SWU training, support and information, including additional Phase 2 Union Contact training

  • Recruit and encourage new members

  • Promote and be involved in campaigns, events, rallies and demonstrations (depending upon your availability and commitments)

  • Receive paperwork and merchandise to successfully undertake the role

All Union Contacts are reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses and will receive initial and ongoing training and support.
