What UNA does for nurses

UNA provides a wide range of services to its members. A key role is negotiating the excellent Collective Agreements that regulate salaries, benefits, schedules and working conditions of members.

UNA also administers its agreements to resolve disputes, improve working conditions and protect nurses’ workplace rights. The union’s professional staff represent members before Labour Relations Board hearings, professional bodies’ disciplinary meetings and other quasi- judicial groups.
