Join

Joining the Retail and Fast Food Workers Union is a simple three step process.

We have four categories of membership, and each category can be paid monthly or annually. If you'd prefer to pay by direct debit or to complete a hard copy membership application, please download our membership form here. Complete the form, scan and email it to us at join@raffwu.org.au

  • All members under 18 years of age should select "Under 18" membership - either annual ($2 per week) or monthly ($10 per month)
  • All members 18 years or over who are engaged on a casual basis should select "Casual" membership - either monthly ($16 per month or $3.70 per week) or annual with a 5% discount
  • All members 18 years or over who are contracted on a non-casual basis for less than 20 hours per week should select "Less than 20 Hours" membership - either monthly ($26 per month or $6 per week) or annual with a 5% discount
  • All members 18 years or over who are contracted on a non-casual basis for 20 hours or more per week should select "20 hours or more" membership - either monthly ($36 per month or $9 per week) or annual with a 5% discount

If you are having difficulty completing the form, please call our membership team at 1300 RAFFWU (1300 723 398). To pay the discounted annual rate, please complete the hard copy membership form or contact us at contact@raffwu.org.au. 

Union membership fees (but not donations) are generally tax deductible and you should consult with your accountant.

Supporters who are not eligible to join (such as those not working in the retail or fast food sectors) can select Solidarity Supporter and choose the monthly financial contribution they wish to make to our work. Supporters who want to make a financial contribution or donation other than on a monthly basis should contact us for other options (contact@raffwu.org.au or 1300 723 398).

Please note, during the application process you will be asked to complete details about your employer, and other identifiers which enable us to undertake our work as your union. Those fields (other than your basic contact details) are not required for Solidarity Supporters as you will not be formally joining our union.

We take your privacy seriously - you can download and review our privacy policy here.

By applying to join the Retail and Fast Food Workers Union Incorporated, members agree to comply with the Rules of the Union, and support the Purposes of the Union. You can download and review our Rules here.
