Becoming a Job Representative

  1. Job Reps are financial members of the ANMF who are committed to the principles, values and traditions of trade unionism, and to promoting the interests of ANMF members in the workplace. Job Representatives must be nominated by two financial members within their workplace. They are required to post notices of their nomination in the workplace for seven days. Job Representatives are then confirmed by Branch Council and notified by the Branch. Read more about the Job Rep role and download a nomination form.

  2. Legal protections for Job Reps Under state and federal industrial relations legislation, it is illegal for any employer to discriminate against an employee based on their membership of a union. Under the Fair Work Act 2009 union representatives and union members have specific rights in the workplace and protections from ‘adverse action’ in the workplace. ANMF Job Reps in the public sector and some Job Reps in other sectors are also protected by specific provisions in their enterprise agreements.
