Join The Movement

Thank you for wanting to be a part of the Game Workers Unite movement. Only by working together can we change this industry for the better.

There’s just a few more steps left. Let’s go!

1. Let’s get to know you

We are doing all of our organising on a secure, private Discord server.

Fill out this form so we can learn a bit more about you.

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

2. Sign up to MEAA or Professionals Australia

GWU Australia is not a union. We are a grassroots movement of people looking to help build a better industry.

We will provide support and advice, but it’s important that you take the next step and formally sign up to a union so that you can be protected.

We are working closely with the two Australian unions who have coverage in the games industry, and representatives from these two unions are available in our Discord to answer questions.

Choose the option below that best suits you:


GAME DEVELOPER

You should join MEAA or Professionals Australia (or both).

If you join MEAA, choose the Entertainment, Crew and Sport (non performance) Industry (ECS) option during the signup process.

Choose the appropriate STAA (Screen Technicians) option when selecting your fees.
