The Health Services Union of Western Australia

The HSUWA is a specialised union of health workers in Western Australia.

Our members work in hospitals and health services, aged care, disabilities, imaging, pathology, private practices and allied health.

We are a growing union organising and campaigning for better pay, conditions and careers for our members.

We are a leading progressive voice of health policy in Western Australia.

We are part of the National Health Services Union, representing more than 100,000 health workers in Australia.

 

On behalf of the HSUWA, welcome.

Tens of thousands of people work across the health system, both public and private. Our members make up the most significant part of the health workforce. We cover the many jobs and varied expertise needed to care for the community and run a health system.

We are dedicated to our purpose - to empower our members to advance their collective interests through organising, support, advocacy and influence.
