Join us to ensure equity and inclusion in the legal profession
Aotearoa Legal Workers’ Union (ALWU) was formed in early 2019, after many months of planning. ALWU’s purpose is to support workers in the legal profession. ALWU advocates for legal workers’ common benefit and strives for equity and inclusion.
Nominations are now open for ALWU’s inaugural elections, which are being held on 5 September 2019! Nominate yourself or a friend for a role on the 2019 – 2020 Executive by 22 August 2019 via the link below:
ALWU’s first campaign aims to ensure compliance with the Minimum Wage Act 1983. Check out what we’re fighting for, and whether you’re being paid less than the minimum wage for the hours that you work, on the campaign page below:

“I think formation of this union is a fantastic advance for all legal workers and for improvement of the culture of our profession. I love the concept of promoting inclusivity and kindness and the fact that, for the first time, a collective voice can be raised for those that work in the legal industry. There has been too much isolation and powerlessness for legal workers who sit at the bottom of what has traditionally been a very hierarchical culture.”Frances Joychild QC Barrister
