We all know educators aren't valued for the important work we do. That's why I joined my union - to play my part
United Voice, the Union for disability support workers, welcomes the announcement of a $527 million funded Royal Commission into violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with a disability.
Members support a detailed examination of all forms of exploitation and abuse, and in particular a detailed examination of the impediments to effective reporting and timely responses to poor conduct.
UVL is a personal injuries law firm dedicated to providing quality legal services in all areas of personal injuries:
- Workers’ compensation claims
- Motor vehicle accident claims
- Public liability claims
- Criminal injuries compensation claims
- Dog attacks/bites
We are owned and operated by United Voice WA, one of the largest and most active unions in Western Australia. We provide legal services consistent with the union values of fairness and equity.
We are passionate about supporting workers and ensuring they get the best outcomes available.
The union difference
We pride ourselves on providing the “union difference”. Our culture and values are union and we fight for the best possible outcome for our clients. We believe in challenging injustice and fighting for workers’ rights. We understand what our clients need and the difficulties they face when seeking compensation.
Unlike other law firms, any money we make is put directly back into helping achieve better pay and conditions for workers in Western Australia.
The findings of the Banking Royal Commission told us what we knew all along.
After voting against the Royal Banking Commission 26 times, the Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government has been caught out colluding with the big banks in the days before the announcement of the Royal Commission.
This just goes to show that the Liberal Federal Government are once again only looking out for the big end of town.
Lives have been ruined and homes have been lost and United Voice members believe that there should be real consequences for those who have done the wrong thing.
The Royal Commission only heard from 27 victims, out of the tens of thousands of people affected.
Hard working every day West Australians deserve better than a Government who puts the interests of their banker mates first – all while cutting penalty rates, cutting funding to schools and hospitals and attacking Union members.
United Voice WA members will continue to fight into the upcoming federal election to put the Liberals last and to secure a fairer Labor Government for all.
Send your message to Scott Morrison and demand he takes real action on the Banking Sector today:
We are only two weeks in and already two country health members have been back paid an accumulated total of $16,000.
How’s that for a start to the year?

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.
