United Voice Victoria
United Voice members are the backbone of life in our state. Victorians rely on us to help them get through their day – from before they wake up, until well after they go to sleep.
Our jobs and our skills are essential to our community. We’re proud of our hard work. We want to be valued for it. And we're ready to speak up.
Like all Australians, we deserve enough for a good life. We need good wages to support our families. We need stable jobs, so we can plan our lives. We want to be able to own our own homes. And we want to be able to retire with confidence in the future.

Tell Myer: clean up your act!My name is Susan* and I work as a cleaner at a Myer store in Melbourne. Cleaners like me work around the clock keeping Myer stores clean and hygienic. But dodgy subcontractors are underpaying us by up to $20 an hour. We are denied basic rights like sick pay, weekend rates and superannuation. If we complain we can be sacked at any time – many of us are too frightened to join our union and speak out. A few weeks ago a Myer cleaner was sacked when he asked about his rights. So was his sister – and his partner. And they weren’t even there! Myer threw out its last contractor earlier this year because cleaners were being exploited. Now it’s happening again. We should be paid properly, and be able to work without fear or intimidation. The system is unjust and is failing us. Please stand with me and my fellow cleaners and tell Myer it needs to clean up its act and demand we are directly employed and receive our full legal pay. *Not my real name.2,433 of 3,000 SignaturesCreated by Susan Myer Cleaner
