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.
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.
