"As early educators, our pay does not reflect our skills, expertise or responsibility. Big Steps is our union campaign for educators to be valued."
United Voice is you, your workmates and thousands of early childhood educators across the country coming together to win the respect and recognition we deserve.
The more educators who are in our union, the bigger and louder our voice is. It's the only way to win the professional pay we deserve!
So if you're not yet a member...

Campaigning to be valued
"When we speak with one, united voice we build community support, raise awareness of our low pay and the importance of the work we do and put pressure on the government to value us by paying us what we're worth."
