Negotiating your EBA
As a member of United Voice you’ll be part of a strong voice that gets a say in how pay and conditions in your EBA are negotiated with your employer. You’ll get to vote for a worksite union delegate to represent your views at the negotiating table, or you can put your hand up to become a delegate yourself.
We offer you indemnity insurance
Professional indemnity insurance protects you in the event of your being sued in relation to incidents occurring while you’re carrying out your professional duties. As a financial member of United Voice employed by an aged care provider, you’re covered for necessary and reasonable costs and expenses incurred (with the insurer’s prior written consent), in defending, investigating or settling any civil liability claims made against you.
For more information on this policy or any claim or potential claim, please contact United Voice on (07) 3291 4600.
Our Turn to Care campaign
Many United Voice members working in aged care have got behind the Our Turn To Care campaign. Our Turn To Care supports quality care and a dignified life for all older Australians. The campaign calls on the federal government to increase aged care funding and make it reliable.
