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 is currently 14.8%. 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 and fight for women to be safe, respected and equal.
