We Are Union Women

Did you know the average union member is a woman?

 

It makes sense, when you consider that women workers face all the industrial issues of our union brothers, plus added discrimination and harassment.

 

The gender pay gap, as at June 2015, is 24.7%. It reflects not only workplace discrimination that holds women back from more senior, better paid roles, but systemic discrimination in the valuation of "caring" work.

 

We Are Union Women is a group of Victorian women workers, activists and officials who organise around the issues facing women in the workforce.
