Seasonal Worker Programme

MADEC and the National Union of Workers (NUW) are committed to the wellbeing of Seasonal Workers in Australia, workers who greatly contribute to Australia’s horticultural industry.

The Seasonal Worker Programme provides opportunities to workers from the Pacific and Timor L’este. It also provides a stable, reliable workforce for the Horticultural industry in Australia, while ensuring the rights of all workers can be protected.

MADEC and the NUW are committed to upholding the rights of workers under the terms of the Seasonal Worker Programme and Australian workplace law.

MADEC and the NUW believe it is crucial for workers on the Seasonal Worker Programme to be able to raise concerns at work and fully exercise their workplace rights while working in Australia.
