Our vision, value, and mission
Every tech worker deserves:
- Fair and reasonable working conditions, including (but not limited to) flexible working hours, meaningful leave coverage, and clear policies on overtime
- Career support, and unbiased information on salary and pay throughout their entire career
- A voice to government and media that represents their interests without fear of upsetting employers
- An advocate who can provide support if things go wrong
Technology jobs are a vital part of our Aotearoa New Zealand’s economic future. Let’s make sure our sector is one we can all be proud of. If you work in a tech job or for a technology company, we are here for YOU.
Aotearoa Tech Union (ATU) was formed in 2018 to support workers in technology-associated roles and organisations, and to advocate for their common benefit regardless of who they work for and whether they work full-time, part-time, as a freelance contractor, or as an intern or student.
Aotearoa New Zealand’s union movement has a long history of leading the way in improving work conditions, and we believe we can do the same for the technology sector. By providing a voice for tech workers and guidance for employers, we can make the tech sector one where all people can thrive.
