Welcome to the homepage for Women's issues at the National Tertiary Education Union.

NTEU is committed to enhancing the participation and voice of women members. Women hold positions of influence and power at all levels of the Union, are active on the Union's enterprise bargaining teams, and contribute to the development of the Union’s strategy.  

The Union has been a leader in many areas concerning women and their professional and employment rights, and provides support for other women through the ACTU and other non-government organisations. NTEU published the first national pay equity study done in Australia, and this has encouraged a broader commitment to pay equity within the labour movement.  

At a national level, the NTEU Women’s Action Committee and the biennial Women’s Conference develop this work. The Union publishes an annual women's magazine, Agenda.
