Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU)
The Australian Council of Trade Unions represents 2 million Australian workers and their families.
Since its creation in 1927, the ACTU has spearheaded some of the most fundamental workplace struggles in Australia’s history. The industrial gains are many: decades of wage increases through the award system and campaigns in the field, safer workplaces, greater equality for women, improvements in working hours, entitlements to paid holidays and better employment conditions, and the establishment of a universal superannuation system.
The RTBU is affilated to the ACTU nationally.
Victorian Trades Hall Council (VTHC)
The major role of the VTHC is the co-ordination of union activities and campaigns. When a union requires assistance and support for an issue which has broad consequences for more than one union, the VTHC may become involved in a co-ordinating role. It also provides assistance to its affiliated unions with research, negotiations and advocacy.
The RTBU is affilated to the VTHC in Victoria.
