Members of the New South Wales branch of the Australian Labor Party will vote on a number of motions to be put forward by unions at its upcoming state conference. Amongst other things, Labor-affiliated unions will push for the reinstatement of compulsory union membership for all party members, a policy that was abandoned in 2015. Meanwhile, some Labor branches will propose that people be offered free membership of the party when they join an affiliated union.
