Aotearoa Legal Workers' Union

Aotearoa Legal Workers' Union's (ALWU) role is to represent workers at legal workplaces in Aotearoa. In addition to advocating for the collective interests of its members generally through the media and with relevant organisations, ALWU also helps members at the individual level.


ALWU has a dedicated advocacy team, plus a panel of experienced employment lawyers who can represent ALWU members on a pro bono basis. They can provide members with a wide range of support, including:

  • providing information and answering questions about members' employment;

  • advising members on employment issues they're facing;

  • acting as a support person and attending meetings with members and their employers;

  • attending and offering support at mediation; and

  • if necessary, representing members at the Employment Relations Authority or the Employment Court.
