Home care workers win biggest pay rise in ten years

Home care workers win biggest pay rise in ten years

In 2017, 2,000 home care workers joined together to win the biggest pay rise in over a decade.

Care workers achieved this by joining their union, sharing their stories, sitting down at the bargaining table and leading negotiations – and they won a fair pay increase and improved their conditions. 

This was a great outcome for care workers, who are some of our hardest working and lowest paid workers in Australia.

They'll be sitting down to bargain again later in 2018 – and United Voice members are already preparing to win better pay and conditions that reflect the value of their work, so that home care can truly be a job you can count on. 

If you're a home care worker, find strength in numbers and join your fellow care workers today!
