With over 2 million Union members across Australia the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) plays a leadership role in coordinating national campaigns.

Here at the Trades Hall in Newcastle we like to ensure that our region has voice in both UnionsNSW and ACTU campaigns.

The Newcastle Trades Hall Council meets every second Thursday at 5 pm. The Council is made up of 196 Delegates from 24 different Unions here in the Hunter.

We coordinate campaigns and hear reports from delegates about what is happening in their workshops, businesses or industry.

Many workers can relate to the stories told to each other and we use our combined strength to ensure that we take on our campaigns with solidarity, dignity, and respect.

We support our communities because they support us.

United to protect

Not to injure
