fwca who we are

WHO WE ARE

Forest & Wood Communities Australia is an alliance of concerned timber workers and supporters of the timber industry. We want to ensure our voice is heard on key issues affecting our livelihoods and the availability of locally sourced renewable and sustainable timber products.

We are a grassroots organisation and actively avoid conflicts of interest with corporate influence to ensure we speak for the workers. We also work alongside other organisations such as the Australian Forest Products Association to show a united front against the wave of misinformation and unjust activism which threatens our industry.

OUR CORE VALUES

FWCA commits to providing

  • The interests of the 10s of thousands of workers in the Australian timber industry, the communities they live in and contribute to, and users of timber products.
  • A fair go for workers in the bush who are forced to endure malicious workplace invasions funded by irresponsible corporate activist organisations.
  • Effective native forest management which achieves ecological as well as socio-economic outcomes.
  • Honest discussions of the timber industry with focus on science and facts rather than ideology.
  • A united voice against the tirade of destructive agenda-driven anti-forestry campaigning by the activist industry which profits from demonising sustainable forestry.
