The Unemployed People's Union organisation in Sydney first formed in Parramatta in 1978 to represent unemployed workers. The name was chosen because of the "Up You" acronym and its membership was drawn mostly from unemployed young people. An Inner City group of UPU formed soon after the Parramatta group.
