About the TWU 

Organisation type and coverage: a union of employees connected to the private transport industry

Financial year: 1 January to 31 December

Date of registration: 3 August 1928

The organisation has 4 branches. Each branch is a reporting unit for the purposes of financial reporting. On 23 July 2021 the National Council of the Transport Workers' Union of Australia disbanded the Queensland Branch and transferred its members to the NSW/QLD (Interim Governance) Branch.   

The supreme control of the organisation is vested in National Council, which is made up of the National Office Bearers and other representatives from the branches of the organisation. The organisation also comprises a Finance Committee of the National Council and a National Committee of Management.

The business of each branch is controlled by the respective Branch Committee of Management.

The National Office Bearers are elected annually, other than the National Secretary and Assistant National Secretary who are elected quadrennially.

The office positions within each Branch Committee of Management are also elected every 4 years. Elections for office positions within the organisation are conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission.

For the current rules, information on rules, rule alterations and permits, please see the Fair Work Commission website. These matters are dealt with by the Fair Work Commission.
