The State School Teachers’ Union of Western Australia has represented teachers, school administrators and lecturers in WA government schools and TAFE colleges for over a hundred years.
Members of the SSTUWA have played a key role in working to secure an education system which is as good as any in the world. Our members work hard to ensure their students are taught well and with care and compassion.
WA's teachers will continue to fight to improve this system for all our children.
Further information about the SSTUWA is available at:



United Voice WA represents education assistants, cleaners and gardeners at public schools. Education Assistants work with children to attain better outcomes at schools. Gardeners maintain school grounds so our children can be active. Cleaners make sure our children learn in a safe environment.
Members of United Voice care deeply about the quality of education at public schools in WA. Members are fighting against the cuts because they know that the educational outcomes of our children will suffer.
