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:

  • hospitality workers

  • casino workers

  • market research and call centre workers

  • cleaners

  • early childhood educators

  • aged care, home care and disability support workers

  • health workers, ambulance officers and paramedics

  • logistics and supermarket supply chain workers

  • security officers

  • teachers aides and education assistants

  • farm workers, dairy workers, poultry workers

  • food and beverage manufacturing workers

For more information, check out the UWU website:

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.
