ALWU Membership Form
By submitting this form, subject to meeting the criteria for membership, you become a member of the Aotearoa Legal Workers Union.
You have the right to join a Union. It's your decision, not your employer's.
Your employer will not know that you have joined. You do not have to tell your employer that you are a member and we will not tell them without asking you first and getting your consent.
It is illegal for your employer to discriminate against you in any way due to your membership of ALWU or your involvement in any of ALWU's activities.
Please note that ALWU will contact you by email in the first instance. If you use your work email address, your employer may be able to see that you have been communicating with ALWU.
We collect your personal information in order to verify that you are eligible to become a member of ALWU and to keep records of our membership base. We are obliged to comply with the Privacy Act 1993 and will not release any details which might result in you being identified as a member of ALWU. Our privacy statement can be found at
