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!
