Your Union for Health and Fitness Professionals

We keep you fit, happy and healthy.

We work in a range of fitness and health roles. We’re the attendants and trainers at gyms, the instructors at yoga and dance schools, and the lifeguards at pools. We’re also the counsellors helping you get through tough times, and the masseurs, naturopaths and weight loss professionals helping you get the most out of life.

We’re fighting for secure jobs with decent pay. For too long workers in the fitness industry have been subject to insecure work arrangements, with poor pay and unfair work terms. As a member you also get access to expert support and advice, a community of like minded workers and benefits at a range of stores.

United Workers Union is our union for health and fitness professionals.  

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.

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!

Standing together, we can change our workplaces.

Better Pay and Conditions

Union members stand together for better pay and conditions, respect, and job security.

Australian workers who are union members earn on average $250 more every week.

Back up and Support at Work

When you face poor treatment – like unfair dismissal, safety issues or harassment at work it’s important to be union.

At worksites across the country UWU Delegates, leaders and Health and Safety Reps have your back.

Training, Community & Information

Members have access to exclusive training and development designed to support you at work.

Being union also gives you access to a community of workers and expert information when you need it.

Join a Movement that Wins

When you’re union, you’re part of a national movement with a long history for standing up for what is right.

If you want a fairer Australia, joining your union is the best way to make a difference.
