er guys, a correction here.  ACS is NOT a union, never has been a union 
and I doubt it ever will be a union.

The ACS (Australian Computer Society) is the recognised professional 
association for those working in Information and Communications 
Technology, seeking to raise the standing of ICT professionals and 
represent their views to government, industry and the community. A 
member of the Australian Council of Professions, the ACS is the guardian 
of professional ethics and standards in the ICT sector, committed to 
ensuring the beneficial use of ICT for all Australians. It provides both 
members and non-members with opportunities for professional education, 
networking and certification, as well as enabling them to contribute to 
the development of their profession.

APESMA has always set itself up as a union
