Australian Federated Union of Locomotive Employees
Traincrew Representing Traincrew

 As the  State Secretary I would like to welcome members and visitors to the AFULE website.

 The AFULE was formed by twenty locomotive drivers who banded together to form the Locomotive Engine Drivers Association of Victoria in 1861 because they saw a need for a dedicated Traincrew Union to represent their industrial interests. Although there have been some name changes over the years, the philosophy of the Union hasn’t changed. It is as pertinent now as it was back in 1861 that Traincrew need a union that unapologetically advocates solely for Traincrew.

I encourage members visiting the website to become more active in their sub-branches because you are the future of the union. To prospective members visiting the website I encourage you to fill out the online application form and become a part of the AFULE. Being a member not only gives you representation by local and State delegates, it also provides numerous benefits and legal advice only available to members.

Yours Fraternally,

Michael McKitrick

State Secretary
