A union organizer (or union organiser) is a specific type of trade union member (often elected) or an appointed union official. A majority of unions appoint rather than elect their organisers. In some unions, the organiser's role is to recruit groups of workers under the organizing model. In other unions, the organiser's role is largely that of servicing members and enforcing work rules, similar to the role of a shop steward. In some unions, organisers may also take on industrial/legal roles such as making representations before Fair Work Australia, tribunals, or courts.
