Caucus Campaigns are campaigns based on particular groups of RAFFWU members. We have a number of caucuses and membership is open to RAFFWU members who identify with the caucus grouping.

Caucuses provide an opportunity for members to share ideas, develop campaigns, prepare policy and actively encourage participation among members with similar issues. Broader membership organisation sometimes do not have as deep an understanding of key issues, or do not place a fair value on a matter because marginalised voices are not heard.

By establishing caucuses we are giving voice to members and amplifying their voice on issues most relevant to them. We unashamedly seek to be led by young workers about issues affecting young workers – such as junior (poverty) rates. The same goes for our other caucuses.

To get involved in a caucus, check out the caucus page and get in touch with the caucus contact.
