We all know educators aren't valued for the important work we do. That's why I joined my union - to play my part
A tool for United Voice (WA) members to raise workplace issues with your United Voice Member Support Team.
Your submission will be forwarded to a relevant Member Support Officer.
Please provide as much detail as possible.
United Voice is your union for enrolled nurses, assistants in nursing, hospital support works, and Aboriginal and ethnic health workers. We represent workers in private health across the state and in a range of facilities.
We fight for fair pay, better conditions and job security.
Through collective bargaining United Voice members win pay rises and significant improvements in our conditions of employment.
We empower workers to know their rights at work and advocate on issues impacting us. Members actively work towards solutions in our workplaces and to resolve issue with management through Joint Consultative Committees.
We’ve fought hard and had a lot of wins together – but there’s still work to be done.
The first step is to join United Voice so we’re as strong as possible, and can keep making progress for private health workers.
From Bakers to Rangers to Candlestick Makers and much, much more...

We repair your shoes, watches and jewellery. We help you get fit and stay in shape.

Membership Contributions (Fees)
United Voice members are on the front line; making our workplaces, industries and communities better places to work and live.
Together, United Voice members continue to win; winning better conditions for members at work, winning back-pay for workers who have been underpaid, and lets not forget the other big fights - helping to remove hostile governments.
All of this is possible because of the contributions you make to your union, personal and financial. But we know times are not easy right now - you don't need to look far to see people struggling.
Which is why your Union membership is so important!
We have some big opportunities and challenges ahead of us:
