United Voice members elected to the National Council have endorsed the proposal to build a new union together with the National Union of Workers. Thousands of members had their say on the name of the new union – United Workers Union.
The Fair Work Commission has approved the member ballot. You should have received emails and/or texts on this to ensure your details are up to date so all members can have a say in this important change.
Our member bodies and National Executive are asking you to support this proposal to build a bigger, stronger union.
We know the bigger we are, the stronger we are, and the more power we have to make real change.
We also know that your local connections with other members and delegates will be vital in the new union and the structures of the union must support local solidarity.
The National Secretaries of the two unions – Jo Schofield (United Voice) and Tim Kennedy (NUW) – want to hear about how members and delegates here in Victoria can continue to support eachother locally.

Until then, keep checking your emails and anewunion.org.au for updates.
