FIRST Union's Global Affiliations

FIRST Union actively participates in the five global union bodies that represent sections of our members on the international stage.

Global union bodies have a very direct impact on the lives of workers both here and in other countries.

In 2014, both IndustriALL and the ITF helped FIRST Union put pressure on Toll Carriers and BP Oil in our bargaining for a decent wage for tanker drivers.

And in 2013, Uni Global and IndustriALL helped draft the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, following the horrific collapse of a building in Bangladesh which saw 1,127 die and a further 2,500 injured.  FIRST Union played a leading role with Australian unions in securing Kmart’s commitment to sign the Accord.

The image at the bottom explains our global links, and the workers they cover.  And you can click on their logos below to visit their web pages.
