United Voice & HSU
United Voice is an organisation of over 120,000 Australian workers, united by our belief in the dignity of workers and the right to fair and just treatment at work. We are an active union, and we are passionate about organising to win.
We are people of diverse races, genders and ages, from every State and Territory. We have diverse backgrounds and a multitude of different skills, but we have the same goal—to be agents of positive social change and to continuously stand up for the type of society we believe in. Many of us work on a casual or part-time basis; 60% of us are women, and half of us are from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. It is from this diversity that we gain great strength.
United Voice brings together members at your workplace, across your industry and across the country. As a member you can feel secure and be ambitious about improving your job, knowing you have the support of unionised colleagues where you work and well beyond. When you are a member of United Voice, you stand together with thousands of workers in your industry – people who believe that a fairer, better society is possible.
You also join an active union that’s campaigning to win on the big issues nationally and in partnership with leading unions overseas. We’re active in workplaces, in communities and in politics.
United Voice is innovative and ambitious. But, most importantly, we’re effective at winning better jobs. Working together, we know that we can build stronger communities and a sustainable future— and a fairer society that we can be proud to pass on to future generations of Australians.
The Health Services Union (HSU) is a growing member based union with over 80,000 members working across the health and community services sectors in every state and territory of Australia.
Our members work in aged care, disability services, community health, mental health, private practices and hospitals.
Members are health professionals, paramedics, scientists, aged care workers, disability support workers, nurses, doctors, technicians, personal care workers, clerical and administrative staff, managers, medical librarians and support staff.
We are committed to advancing and protecting the wages, conditions, rights and entitlements of members through campaigning and workplace activism. The HSU also provides a range of services and support to assist members with many aspects of working and family life.
We are a driving force to make Australia a better place.
New Campaign Campaigns
Fix the crisis in aged careWe are family members, older Australians, and workers in aged care and we are campaigning so that every Australian can have a dignified life in retirement. We believe that quality care is directly linked to quality jobs. Care workers should have enough time to do their jobs, get a fair wage and be trained to deliver quality care. Aged care should be funded so care workers have enough time to provide quality care and there is transparency and accountability about how public funding is spent.821 of 1,000 SignaturesCreated by Georgia Potter Butler
