The largest and fastest growing union in Australia

In addition to being a state-registered union, the QNMU is also a branch of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF).

The ANMF is one of the largest and fastest growing unions in Australia with branches in each state and territory, and more than 260,000 members.

Nurses and midwives who are members of the QNMU are also automatically full members of the ANMF.

While state interests naturally dominate the activities of the QNMU, our affiliation with our federal body means the QNMU is also active in promoting the interests of nurses and midwives on a national and international level.

The ANMF Federal Office also represents Australian nursing internationally through links with other national and international nursing organisations, professional associations and the International Labour Organisations.

The ANMF is a member of the Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Federation and the South Pacific Nurses Forum and is affiliated to the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), International Centre for Trade Union Rights and Union Aid Abroad, and the International Council of Nurses.
