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.
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 members in Disability Support provide essential services to some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
We are at hand to give you and your family professional care when you need it.
We fight hard to make sure people with a disability have their care needs adequately funded through the NDIS, and to make sure workers get a fair deal too.
Here in WA we have a great "Disability Industry Delegates" group who always take a lead in making decisions which affect Disability Support Workers.
Together, United Voice members have had some great wins over the years - raising wages and improving conditions in for Disability Support Workers across many employers and workplaces.
But there's still a long way to go - that's why it's really important to join your Union!
United Voice is your Union for Support Workers in public and private hospitals.
United voice members in hospitals work as Aboriginal Health Workers, Cleaners, Cooks, CSSD staff, Enrolled Nurses, Food Service Assistants, Kitchen Assistants, Laundry staff, Orderlies, Patient Care Assistants, Porters, Sterilisation Technicians, and more.
We are at the frontline of defending quality public and private health, and quality jobs for hospital workers - having fought hard against budget cuts and privatisation over many years under the previous Liberal Party Government.
We have fought hard and taken a LOT of action together; and it show's.
Government Health support workers in Western Australia have some of the best support worker wages and conditions in Australia.
But there's still a lot of work to done, especially when it comes to insecure work.
That's why we are running the "Target 10" campaign, to:
1) Increase secure Employment
2) Achieve more hours for part-time staff
3) A target of no more than 10% casual or agency usage in each hospital department and occupation
The first step is to make sure our Union is as strong as possible.
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.
