Every worker has the right to join a union. There is a union for every worker in every kind of job and every workplace.
The United Workers Union (UWU) represents a range of workers:
market research and call centre workers
early childhood educators
aged care, home care and disability support workers
health workers, ambulance officers and paramedics
logistics and supermarket supply chain workers
teachers aides and education assistants
farm workers, dairy workers, poultry workers
food and beverage manufacturing workers

Joining a union is completely confidential–you don’t need to tell the boss, your co-workers or anyone if you don't want to. Unions can:
Help ensure you get treated fairly and paid properly
Help you improve your pay and conditions, including safety at work
Help you if you have a question or issue at work
Help support campaigns about important issues outside of the workplace.
Unions are the most effective way to take action to protect and improve your rights at work.
It is illegal for you to be discriminated against just because you join a union.
