Welcome to the TWU

TWU Secretary Michael AirdWe are the men and women who keep New South Wales moving. From humble beginnings on July 24th 1888 as the Sydney Trolley and Draymen's Union, we have grown to more than 30,000 members working everyday in trucking, public transport and taxis, at our airports, on the waterfronts, in the waste and cash in transit industries, in distribution centres and associated workplaces.

From distribution centres to behind the wheel, both employees and owner-driver members understand the power of standing together to achieve real change at their workplace and in their communities. Our members play a vital role in the fight for a fair day's pay for a fair day's work for all transport and distribution industry workers.

We are 127 years young and we'll continue to stand for good jobs, safe communities and a strong transport industry.

If you're not already a member join now to become part of Australia's leading union and protect your rights at work!
