As a Union, we support Australian industry and Australian produce.  

Much of Australia is feeling the effects of our country’s long-standing drought, with many farmer families and businesses struggling to cope.

The UFU supports the work of Rural Aid.  Rural Aid was established in 2015 and operates nationally.  Rural Aid is a charity that provides relief to farmers and rural families experiencing poverty, illness, distress or significant and unusual disadvantage as a result of weather events/mother nature.  Rural Aid’s Buy a Bale initiative has allowed the charity to distribute in excess of $3 million worth of fodder to farmers around the nation. 

The UFU has made inquiries and can confirm that Rural Aid is not a lobby group.  Rather, their focus is on the wellbeing of rural and farming persons and to ensure that rural/farming families survive harsh Australian weather events.
