YOUR UNION FOR AMBULANCE OFFICERS AND PARAMEDICS
We respond to emergencies and get you to the hospital.
We are paramedics, emergency medical dispatchers and patient transport officers, working around the clock to save lives and care for you in your time of need. Our work is difficult, demanding and incredibly high pressure. Together we are standing up for better pay and conditions, zero tolerance for abuse, support for mental health, and opportunities for professional development.
United Workers Union is our union for Ambulance Officers, paramedics, emergency dispatchers, patient transporters, air rescue crews and fleet maintenance officers.
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.
TAKE ACTION FOR Ambulance workers:
Spread the word
Stand up, Speak out.
A union delegate is another union member just like you. They have a job to do every day, and they answer to the same management that you do. The key difference is that a union delegate has training, tools and protections to help you and other members solve problems at work!
Join the union for emergency workers!
Standing together, we can change our workplaces.
