ABOUT HUNTER WORKERS
Hunter Workers (formerly known as “Newcastle Trades Hall Council”) is the overall representative body that acts on behalf of all affiliated Unions in the Hunter Region. The organisation is committed to ‘strength in unity’ uniting 70,000 workers across 27 Unions to foster communication and solidarity within the Union Community. Established in 1895 it is one of the region’s largest community organisations.
The Hunter Region has an impressive history of Union participation and activism. Many of Australia’s most valued workplace conditions are sustained by the efforts of hardworking Hunter Workers. Throughout our recent history, we have fought for the rights of Australians to receive decent wages, fairer working hours, and a safe and secure work environment.
Hunter Workers encourages our community to join Hunter Workers. This website is designed to help workers keep in touch with campaigns and events that impact the Hunter community. If you have never been asked to join a union the site can also help you find the union which best represents you. There is a union organisation for each and every Hunter Worker.
