Membership of WA Labor is about having a say in Australia’s future.
Labor is Australia’s oldest and largest political party.
Established in 1891, Labor is rich in history and represents a broad range of economic and social interests.
WA Labor encourages you to join and make your voice heard - as a Labor member, you can shape decisions affecting our community, influence the policy of Labor governments and discuss ideas with other members.
Party Members all belong to a Branch and your Branch is one of the foundations of WA Labor.
Our Party can only function effectively with the active involvement of its members.
There are two types of Branches:
- Local Branches are named after suburbs or towns and organised around a local geographic area.
- Direct Branches are organised around an issue or a broader group in the community.
Joining a Branch is recommended but not compulsory. If you would like more information about Branches please see our list of active Branches.
People joining WA Labor are required to declare on the application form they are not a member of any other political Party, that they will abide by the rules of the Party and that they are 16 years of age or older and are a resident of Western Australia.
- All members under the age of 26 are also automatically members of WA Young Labor.
- All female members are automatically members of the Labor Women's Organisation.
Payments must be made using a personal credit or debit card in your name or the name of a family member who lives at your address.
Payment that does not meet these criteria will be refunded.
To pay for your membership by other means (direct debit, cheque) or if you prefer to pay your monthly contributions (if required) annually, you will need to download and complete a 2021 Membership Application and return to WA Labor by email to [email protected] or by post.
