A.F.U.L.E. – Protecting Queensland Traincrew

Welcome to the Australian Federated Union of Locomotive Employees – the oldest railway union in the world.

The A.F.U.L.E. is a craft union that represents Traincrew in Queensland.

As the State Secretary of the Union along with the State President, we lead a team of dedicated Traincrew who volunteer their time to work together to further protect the wages and conditions of Traincrew across the State, under the motto “Traincrew Representing Traincrew”.

Throughout these pages you will find information about our Union, structures and activities. You will also find the latest news about what is happening in our workplaces.

I trust that you will find this site interesting and informative.
