Aotearoa Tech Union, Protecting NZ's Tech workers

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.


Our history


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.
