CFMEU Membership

If you’re a tradesperson or labourer working in the construction industry, then you’re probably eligible to join the CFMEU.

The CFMEU is here to protect and improve your wages and conditions. As a member, you are part of an organisation that has the collective power to negotiate with employers on your behalf.

The union also employs specialist staff to provide assistance and advice where it’s needed – whether you need an organiser on site, industrial representation in court, legal advice or a visit from the OH&S Officer, as well as a whole range of other benefits and services.

We encourage you to join the Union and learn the value and importance of Unionism and its key attributes like strength, unity and mateship.

Contact us today on 08 8231 5532 if you are unsure whether you are eligible to join.
