Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union South & Western Australia Branch.

The Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union (AMIEU) is the union that represents the interests of workers in the meat industry including butchers, slaughterers, boners, smallgoods makers, wrapper packers, workers in abattoirs, boning rooms, retail shops, supermarkets, smallgoods factories, wholesalers, caterers, by-products and rendering plants, meat markets, pre-packing areas, runner processors and various others sectors of the meat and by-product industry such as drivers and salespeople.

The AMIEU is part of the Australian Union movement that serves to protect and represent the interests of workers in a number of ways – through its representative group, the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), and on an individual union basis, the union movement lobbies government to pass laws to protect workers rights in regard to industrial relations, Workers Health and Safety and Workers Compensation.

This site aims to provide general information for people employed in these industries, as well as specific information for members of the Union employed in South Australia and Western Australia.
