NUW visits Vanuatu National Workers Union

Many workers from Vanuatu and other Pacific Island nations work in the fresh food supply chain in Australia, bringing fruit and vegetables to our supermarket shelves.

Recently the NUW attended a union conference in Vanuatu held by the VNWU. The NUW is the union in Australia working to protect the right of ni-Vanuatu and other seasonal workers while they are working in Australia.
