On behalf of the ETU, welcome.

The WA branch of the ETU is made up of groups of workers who have organised themselves into the union to solve problems that they can't solve on their own. We know that as a group, we have more power than individuals and with that power we can put pressure on employers to respond to the issues that concern us in our working lives.
Les McLaughlan, State Secretary
