Join | ALP Queensland


The strength of the Australian Labor Party is the strength of numbers — the thousands of Australians who are active, committed members.

All people who vote Labor are encouraged to consider becoming members because it is important for the Party to reflect your concerns and ideas. Most people over 15 years of age and living in Queensland can join the Australian Labor Party.

Whether you’re from a Labor family, are a committed unionist, have always voted Labor, or share our values, then joining Queensland Labor is the next natural step! With conservative governments at all levels it’s time to get off the sidelines and take up the fight.
