Not sure what a trade union is? Read the explainer here.
As a trade union, we give workers a voice. We do that at every level from workplace to boardroom to parliaments and the corridors of power wherever they exist.
Members are the lifeblood of our union, thanks to our organising approach. Day in, day out, they give up their time and energy to support their colleagues at work and build TSSA’s grass roots. And our staff and officials are there every step of the way to guide, support and represent transport and travel workers, negotiating and bargaining for better pay and working conditions and seeking improvements for our members' lives.
From providing submissions to policy consultations, to lobbying politicians and attending conferences and events, we take our messages wherever we need to get them heard.
TSSA represents workers across the transport and travel industries. Find out more here.
TSSA campaigns on issues that affect our members both in the workplace and in their everyday lives.
TSSA works to put the expertise and experience of our members in front of politicians and policymakers.

As a trade union, we are experts in negotiating and bargaining for better terms and conditions for our members.
