UnionsWA is the state's peak union body, representing over 30 affiliated unions which have over 150,000 members in Western Australia.

News & Events
UnionsWA has commented on the recent release by SafeWork Australia of the latest data on work fatalities in Australia, including WA. These are the most reliable figures available on work fatalities and provide data on work fatality rates per 100,000 workers over thirteen years to 2015 that show the fatality rate in WA worsened from 1.6 in 2014 to 2.6 in 2015. WA is the only state or territory in Australia where the work fatality rate actually worsened between 2014 and 2015.
This weekend the Save Our Services campaign, led by UnionsWA and public sector unions, commences a campaign highlighting WA government mismanagement of hospital privatisation and health services. This follows a recent poll commissioned by Save Our Services that shows health and hospitals to be the most important issue for West Australian voters. Ged Kearney, President of the ACTU and a nurse by background, joined campaign supporters to release details of the campaign.
