Every worker has the right to join a union. There is a union for every worker in every kind of job and every workplace.
The AEU represents public teachers, school assistants, school psychologists and CIT teachers in the ACT.
Joining a union is completely confidential–you don’t need to tell the boss, your co-workers or your parents. Unions can:
Help ensure you get treated fairly and paid properly
Help you improve your pay and conditions, including safety at work
Help you if you have a question or issue at work
Help support campaigns about important issues outside of the workplace.
Unions are the most effective way to take action to protect and improve your rights at work.
It is illegal for you to be discriminated against just because you join a union.
