United Workers Unions Campaigning For A 25% Wage Increase
On Saturday 27th May, United Workers Union members are campaigning for a 25 per cent wage increase to address the workforce crisis in Australia’s early learning sector.
The budget missed the chance to explicitly fund a pay rise for the industry. There is $55 billion in financing for price reductions for families, which will increase demand for spots, and $72 million set aside for training, neither of which will deal with the wages of educators or begin to address the sector's workforce crisis. 
New workplace laws are coming on 6 June 2023, and that means big changes to the way educators can negotiate for better pay and conditions.

If you want to be part of planning the next steps to winning real change in your sector, register to attend a Big Steps Town Hall with your fellow educators on May 27!
