100 Years Strong

This year, we turn 100!

To celebrate, we've dug through the archives to find our most iconic pictures from the last 100 years of being #unionstrong!

In 1910 thirty workers met together in a small room in Trades Hall Sydney to form a tiny union which became The Misso's (Federated Miscellaneous Workers Union).

The First award they achieved made it illegal for employers to have watchmen working more than 72 hours a week. That was in 1911, and the union has been working for members ever since.

 

 

This year United Voice turns 100! So for the next 100 days, we'll be celebrating our members being 100 years strong!
