United Voice is your Aged Care Union, dedicated to protecting quality jobs for Aged Care workers and quality care for older Australians.
Thousands of aged-care workers in both home-care and residential aged care are United Voice members, including personal carers, gardeners, cooks, cleaners and more.
We have a presence in all major Aged Care workplaces and employer groups, including Aegis, Amana Living, Baptist Care, Bethanie, Braemar, Brightwater, Catholic Homes, Hall & Prior, Juniper, Southern Cross and many more.
United Voice members are some of the most knowledgable and experienced people in the sector, and members concerns and experiences are integral to the success and quality of aged care in Australia.
That's why United Voice members play such a pivotal role in providing a voice for thousands of carers, and older Australians in care, through the Our Turn To Care campaign.
Our Turn To Care supports quality care and a dignified life for all older Australians. The campaign calls on the federal government to increase aged care funding and make it reliable.
Whether you work as a casual or permanent staff member, part time or full time United Voice represents you.
Everyone in Australia has the right to join a union.
United Voice is your Union in Early Childhood Education and Care, with thousands of Educators standing together across every state and territory.
We are Educators, Early Childhood Teachers, Cooks, Assistant Centre Directors, Centre Directors - everyone who works in an ECEC Centre can be a United Voice member.
Through our national campaign, Big Steps, we're fighting for early childhood members to be valued for the vital role we play educating children in the early years, through professional pay.
As Australians we pride ourselves on living in a country that values hard work, a fair go and equal opportunity for all.
But the gender pay gap has grown in the past decade. Working in a female dominated sector like ours, and that means we're still some of the lowest paid professionals in Australia.
A responsible government would have already delivered us the respect we deserve: professional pay that recognises our essential role in society.
As a united workforce, standing together in our union, educators are a powerful force for change. The more of us there are, the bigger and louder our voice is.
We will not be ignored!
There has never been a more important time to be a union member.
