The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) is the peak union body in Australia representing 46 affiliated unions and some 2 million Australian workers. The ACTU was established in 1927 in Victoria.
The ACTU Congress is held every three years and sets the policy agenda for the Australian trade union movement. The ACTU’s position on Palestine is generally voted under the International Policy.
