Welcome

The Women in Trade Unions Network (WITUN) is an organisation containing - within a flexible membership structure - a variety of women from different unions and different areas of the workforce.

This year WITUN will be sending a message out to network members every month, so if you have things you want included please email us and we will include them in our regular bulletins.

The email network is for women who are union members, activists or officials including those women who are retired members.  If you would like to join the network email us at saunions@saunions.org.au

History

The Network was formed in 1983 by a group of women involved with two South Australian Institutions - the Working Women's Centre and the United Trades & Labor Council (SA Unions).  Some of the foundation members are Steph Key (now a Member of Parliament), Carolyn Pickles (ex MLC).

The strength of the union movement is based on its collective, democratic organisation and its unity of purpose.  While women's share of union membership is rising, their participation in union affairs is lagging.  This reflects women's major share of child rearing and domestic work and the lack of awareness in many unions of the problems facing women members and ways of involving women.

 

SA Unions Women's Standing Committee's role is to address these issues that women face in the workforce.  Unions are committed through the Standing Committee in increasing women's involvement in the workforce.
