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.
Membership of WA Labor is about having a say in Australia’s future.
If you wish to pay by means other than credit card/online, you will need to download a Membership Application Form. You can print this form, complete it, and return it by post or in-person at Party Office.
Please contact our Membership Officer if you have any enquiries by phoning 9328 7222 or send an email to [email protected]
Party Members all belong to a Branch and your Branch is one of the foundations of WA Labor. The Party can only function effectively with the active involvement of its members in Branches.
There are two types of Branches:
- Local Branches are named after suburbs or towns and organised around a local geographic area.
- Direct Branches are generally larger and 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 or contact our Membership Officer.
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.
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 card in your name or the name of an family member who lives at your address.
Payment that do not meet this criteria will be refunded.
Fee structures are revised by the Party each October in conjunction with the beginning of a new membership year, with both the initial annual payment and monthly contributions subject to change. These changes will take effect for members after they have paid their initial annual payment for the new membership year.
