The Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union (EPMU) was the largest private sector trade union in New Zealand. It was formed in 1996 by the merger of the Engineers' Union (EU), the Printing, Packaging and Manufacturing Union (PPMU), and the Communications and Energy Workers' Union (CEWU).
The EPMU represented workers in eleven industries, including:
- Print & Media
- Postal & Logistics
- Petrochemical & Extractive
- Public Services & Infrastructure
The EPMU had 40,000 members and was affiliated with the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions and the New Zealand Labour Party. It was also an affiliate of the International Federation of Journalists. In October 2015, it merged with the Service & Food Workers Union to form E tū.
