Your Union for Animal Care Workers
We look after our animal friends.
We’re the workers looking after our beloved pets and animals in times of need. We’re the surgeons, nurses and attendants at veterinary hospitals, and the animal care workers in zoos and shelters. Our work can be physically and emotionally demanding. We work all hours to care for loved animals in sometimes insecure jobs with poor conditions. We’re fighting for secure jobs, decent pay and conditions. We know a well paid and secure workforce is essential to providing the best animal care.
United Workers Union is our union for animal care, veterinary hospital and zoo workers in Australia.
UWU represents over 150,000 workers from all walks of life across Australia. Throughout our history, we’ve shown when working people come together, we win.
We fight hard for jobs you can count on, decent pay and conditions, and respect at work. Your union is here to help you, we provide a range of quality services, benefits and representation when you need it.
