The Alliance is the union and professional organisation which covers everyone in the media, entertainment, sports and arts industries. Our members include people working in TV, radio, theatre & film, entertainment venues, recreation grounds, journalists, actors, dancers, sportspeople, cartoonists, photographers, orchestral & opera performers as well as people working in public relations, advertising, book publishing & website production ...in fact everyone who works in the industries that inform or entertain Australians.
The union has branch offices in all states and is made up of separate sections so that each of the diverse occupations it embraces can control their own affairs and protect their professional autonomy. The union offers the infrastructure to members to run their own campaigns. Members of each section directly elect representatives to Branch Council and the Alliance’s supreme governing body, Federal Council. There is usually a local delegate or house committee at each workplace providing the vital link between members and the branch and federal offices. Also, active sectional committees for groups like performers and freelancers provide opportunities for dealing with important policy and professional issues affecting their work.
