Western Mine Workers’ Alliance

The Western Mine Workers Alliance is hundreds of Pilbara mining workers, under the banners of the AWU & MEU (The Australian Workers’ Union and the Mining and Energy Union).

Together, the two unions are where mining workers come together to build power in our workplaces.

Union members all over Australia win better wages, safer conditions, and a voice at work. It’s no different in Pilbara mines – when workers come together we win.

Union members are fighting for:

  • Secure jobs for all workers are automation and non-permanent work take hold.
  • An ironclad commitment from Rio Tinto and BHP that workers whose jobs are automated will be retrained, reskilled and redeployed.
  • a lasting and genuine commitment that Rio Tinto and BHP won’t turn their back on Pilbara communities.
  • Better wages, safer conditions, and a voice at work.
