The Retail and Fast Food Workers Union Incorporated is a Union. A union is formed when workers come together as a group to improve their conditions. Often bosses and their business partners will try and control unions – even sometimes trying to say a union is not a union. They do this because they know when workers organise collectively into genuine fighting unions they secure much better outcomes than if they don’t organise or if they are controlled in bosses unions (which are sometimes called yellow unions.) The SDA is an example of a yellow union which does deals with the bosses that leave workers much worse off. More on how and why the SDA does this is here: www.raffwu.org.au/sda_facts
The Retail and Fast Food Workers Union Incorporated is also an Industrial Association under the Fair Work Act 2009. We are also a registered Australian body under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cwth) and operate throughout Australia.

As the Union grows we will open offices across Australia and keep members informed of their locations. As a fighting union most of our work does not occur in union offices but in workplaces and community spaces. We have dedicated local union officials organising in communities including:
- Sydney, Wollongong & Surrounds
- Newcastle & the Hunter Region
- South East Queensland
- Perth & Surrounds
We also assist members in all Australian communities to organise their workplaces and dedicate paid union officials to communities as membership grows in the area.
The best way to contact us is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 1300 RAFFWU (1300 723 398). Due to the high volume of contact, we prioritise inquiries from members. You can also write to us at RAFFWU, PO Box 334, Clifton Hill, Victoria, 3068.
