Submissions

asu submissions raising our members voices1200pxw

The ASU lodges submissions to national inquiries in the course of our work to ensure that the voice of our members is heard in all the relevant debates.

Parliamentary inquiries, investigations by the Productivity Commission, these can all shape how governments make policy decisions. To ensure our members' interests are taken into account we both lodge written submissions and attend hearings, sometimes with members as witnesses.

Below is a chronological list of submissions produced by the ASU. You can find our publications on our publications page.
