Membership in WALGA Employee Relations is a subscription-based affiliation. This service is made available to the local authorities of the VA, whose costs are based on the size of the local government. Walga has entered into a formal agreement with the Local Government Association Northern Territory (LGANT) to provide local governments in the Northern Territory with labour relations, staff relations and human resources advice.
