Who We Are

Who We Are

We walk the talk

United Voice is a union of workers organising to win better jobs, stronger communities, a fairer society and a sustainable future. As one of Australia’s oldest and most progressive unions, we’re proud of the wins we’ve achieved with our members over our 100 year history.

We’re active in the workplace, the community and in politics. So whether we’re organising workplaces, hosting events, lobbying politicians, appearing in industrial courts, or providing advice to our members – you can count on the fact we’re focused on making working life better for Queenslanders everywhere.   

Our Queensland branch office is based in South Brisbane but we have representatives right across the state, as our members are spread far and wide. Importantly, the Queensland branch is just one cog in a bigger wheel, with branches in every Australian state and territory.

Members set our agenda

United Voice has around 30,000 members in Queensland alone, working across a diverse range of industries. We represent early childhood educators, teacher aides, ambulance officers and cleaners through to workers in aged care, hospitality, manufacturing, security and various private enterprises.

Our members are at the heart of everything we do, and our democratic structure gives members a real voice in how we operate. The ethos of our union is ‘members representing members’, which is why we appoint delegates in workplaces out there on the frontline. These delegates are your first point of contact if you have an issue at work. The reason is they understand the pressures you face – because they face them too.

Empowering change
