Code of Conduct


United Tech & Allied Workers is organising to improve the conditions of all tech workers. Founded on the principles of worker solidarity and empowering the underrepresented, we aim to reshape the tech industry for the good of everyone. We recognise, represent and encourage all workers in the tech industry to join us - from developers and project managers to cleaners and warehouse workers, together we will improve our working conditions and change our industry for the better. This code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behaviour.


Unacceptable behaviour from any community member will not be tolerated.

We expect all community participants to abide by this Code of Conduct in all community venues online and in-person, as well as in all one-on-one communications pertaining to community business.

This code of conduct and its related procedures also extends to unacceptable behaviour occurring outside the scope of community activities when such behaviour has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of community members.

Expected Behaviour

Unacceptable Behaviour

Consequences For Unacceptable Behaviour

Most actions from moderators will be friendly reminders, however they will act on reports quickly and appropriately.

Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behaviour is expected to comply immediately.

If a community member engages in unacceptable behaviour, we may take any action deemed appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning.

Community organisers are available to help community members engage with local law enforcement or to otherwise help those experiencing unacceptable behaviour feel safe. In the context of in-person events, organisers will also provide escorts as desired by the person experiencing distress.


If you are subject to or witness unacceptable behaviour, or have any other concerns, please notify us using one of the contacts below.




Addressing Grievances

Permanent resolutions, such as bans, may be appealed. To appeal a decision of the community organisers, contact with your case.
