Thank you for wanting to be a part of the movement to unionise Australia’s games industry.

Only by working together can we change this industry for the better.

This should only take a few minutes. Let’s go!

Step 1: Join our community

Click the big button below and fill out our…

We are doing all of our organising on a secure, private Discord server, so we need to know a bit about you before we send you an invite.

Once you’ve completed the form, we will be in touch with a link that you can use to join our server.

Anyone in our industry who is interested in unionising can join the Game Workers Australia community – it’s free, and it’s where we hold all of our monthly meetings and catchups.

Want to get protected at work, enjoy legal support, get access to exclusive events and more?

2. Sign up for a paid GWA membership package

In 2022, Professionals Australia launched a new Game Workers Australia paid membership package with services, benefits and support tailored for your industry.

There are three different membership options, starting at $20 p/month at the entry level, up to $65/month for total support and full access to legal protection and advice.

All union fees are 100% tax deductible.

Remember: always join before you have an issue, not after. There are limitations on how much assistance can be provided if you’re in the middle of a complicated issue when you sign up.

Work in journalism, broadcasting, streaming or another non-development field?

Game workers come from many disciplines. Anyone working in one of these fields should instead join the MEAA (Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance). Click here for more details.

3. Come to our next meeting!

We hold monthly meetings on Discord, so check your welcome email for the date of the next meeting!

We also hold regular IRL meetings around the country and special events just for members. We would love to catch up with you and get to know more about what’s important to you.

Thanks for joining! Only with all of us working together can we truly make a difference.
