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. Click the big button below and fill out our…

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

2. Become a paid member of Professionals Australia or the MEAA

GWU Australia is not a union ourselves. We are a grassroots movement of people looking to help build a better industry, by working with Australia’s current unions.

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.

Always join before you have an issue, not after. Join today – it’s tax deductible and there are so many benefits!

We are working closely with the two Australian unions who have coverage in the games industry. Choose the option below that best suits you:
