Delegate Resources

About being a delegate

There are few more important roles in our union than that of workplace delegate. Workplace delegates are the vital support link between members in different worksites and different areas. To win better lives we need effective collective campaigns, and collective campaigns that win need the support and commitment of workplace delegates. There’s a lot to do to ensure fairness for workers and fairness for Queensland’s communities.
