Welcome to the Manitoba Nurses' Union - Worksite 97!
The PCBC have met 7 times in past couple of months putting together what we feel is a "lean, mean and achievable" package for bargaining. A collective bargaining conference was held Dec 1/16 at the RBC convention centre with all of the worksite & local presidents to review the proposed package and answer any questions regarding the central table issues. Worksite specific issues were not discussed at this conference as each area has their own specific concerns. The MNU will be serving notice to bargain in the upcoming weeks.

As of June 2016, new legislation states that employers are now obligated to provide employees with 5 paid days annually to help deal with domestic violence. The days can be used all at once to help relocate or can be broken up, for example, to help with counselling sessions. These days are to be used at your discretion to assist in any way for those in this unfortunate situation. These situations can be very sensitive in nature. Please contact your union president to help with the navigation through the process to ensure these days can be utilized. Your union president can advocate on your behalf without having to have direct conversation with your NRC.Addictions & Recovery
A nurse who previously struggled with addictions has recognized the importance of starting a support group solely for nurses who struggle with addiction. Aside from the addiction itself, comes the difficulty of navigating through issues with the colleges and the employer. Recovering Nurses United is a volunteer-run/ non-profit organization that MNU is now supporting to assist nurses with their journey towards recovery.
If you know of someone who is struggling or it is you, yourself, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. No one can understand better what a nurses is going through than another nurse with the same struggles.
