As a nurse you can contribute to making your union work for you through:
A union works best when its members are involved. Your rights under the collective agreement can only protect you if you are aware of them and use them.
Whenever possible attend union meetings – this will allow you to be informed.
Volunteer as a unit representative and sit on the Local executive – act as a communication link between your union and the nurses on your unit.
Let your name stand for election to a committee position.
