Game Workers Australia – your voice in the workplace

About us

Game Workers Australia is new group within Professionals Australia that specifically represents game workers.

For the first time in Australian history, video game workers will officially be part of a union that will advocate for better pay and conditions for game workers and will provide industrial advice, support, and representation.

The Australian games industry is a drawcard for many young professionals seeking to work in an environment where they can apply high-level skills and creativity. Despite this many game workers experience poor pay and conditions, are engaged on short-term contracts, work excessive hours without paid overtime, and encounter work-related stress and bullying.

When you join Game Workers Australia, you can feel secure in the knowledge that your employment and workplace health and safety rights will be backed by a union that understands the unique challenges and issues in the games industry.

Join us today to strengthen our campaigns for better pay and conditions for game workers and an industry that supports diversity and inclusion.
