Our union is run by members, and our democratic structures mean members decide how our union works and where we invest resources to ensure the best possible outcomes for members. We work together to make a difference for our families, our co-workers, communities and friends.

Together has members in the Queensland public service including in Queensland Health, state schools, our correctional centres, our police stations and our child safety offices as well members across the broader Queensland public sector, including universities. Together members also work in the private sector working as allied health professionals and administrative and clerical staff across Queensland. Together represents members in airlines, aged care, private hospitals, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services, call centres, private pathology and the legal industry.

Run by members, for members

Being a union member means you get to have a say. Members decide collectively what approach to take to bargaining, wages and conditions. You get a say at the level of your local workplace, or at the employer level.

We are a democratic union. Read more about our union structures here.

Our History

Working people in Australia began to form unions for the protection of their interests in the 1880s-90s. Our predecessor organisations were founded in the first decade of the 20th century.  The Queensland Public Service Union and ASU (Central and Southern Queensland) branch, also known as the Clerks Union, amalgamated on 1 July 2011 to form Together Queensland.
