FIND ETHICAL AUSTRALIAN PRODUCTS

If you’re looking for makers of workwear or campaign wear, below is a list of TCFUA  approved manufacturers to assist other unions and interested parties in their selection of makers of workwear and campaign wear.

The list identifies if the garments are made by union members with Federal Award conditions or Union Enterprise Agreement conditions.  In addition, the list identifies if the company is accredited under Ethical Clothing Australia. This means that they have not only been accredited to the Code but that they also provide data to the union that shows who does the work and that minimum award conditions at least are applied.
