Worksite Representatives 


ANMF (SA Branch) Worksite Representatives (WSR) are the people who make sure our union is a part of everyday life in their worksites.

Worksite Representatives:

  • Provide a familiar and friendly first contact point for members and other staff.
  • Keep members informed and involved in local activities and broader campaigns.
  • Advise and act as a sounding board, talking to members about workplace problems and how to deal with them.
  • Support members to get advice and assistance from ANMF officers.
  • Recruit and welcome new members to the union.
  • Represent and be a spokesperson for the ANMF in their worksites.
  • Keep the ANMF office informed of issues in sites.

Worksite Representatives are an essential part of our union.
