The RMIT ALP (Labor) club offer students a wide range of both formal and informal events including guest speakers, tours, election training, student campaigns, debates and wide range of social activities that are sure to appeal to anyone interested in labour politics, social and environmental policy, or anyone that holds strong social democratic values.
2019 membership is now open! Annual membership is free and you can join/re-join through the purple "Join or Renew" tab. If you don't have a log in for the RUSU website, it will ask you to set one up first. This is not the same as joining the Student Union (though we encourage you to join your Student Union - that's the "JOIN NOW" button at the top of the page!).

Our members are dedicated to the Australian Labor Party and various national trade unions.
We are interested in working collaboratively with other social justice oriented RMIT student clubs.
