Our Turn to Care: United Voice campaign celebrates aged care workers

On Wednesday September 12, United Voice members in aged care celebrated the first “Thank You for Working in Aged Care Day.”

Members from metropolitan and regional sites wore stickers and held a range of events including morning teas and lunches.

United Voice Delegate Jo Bryant said,

“Aged care is not an easy job.

“It made a nice change for aged care workers like me to feel appreciated for the work we do every day. 

United Voice Delegate Rosemary Lambe said,

“We had a lovely day celebrating with our co-workers and union representatives.

“I look forward to making this an annual event!”

This is one of many activities as part of the recently-launched Our Turn To Care campaign in aged care.

Our Turn to Care will be campaigning for sustainable and reliable funding for wages and services in the aged care sector – because all older Australians deserve quality care and a dignified life.
