As NUHW, we’ve won strong contracts, stood up for each other, and advanced our professions.
“We helped form NUHW more than a decade ago to make sure we would have a voice in our union and in our workplaces.”:
TURUSEW GEDEBU WILSON
“In our Regional Professional Practice Committee this year, we reached an agreement with Kaiser on guidelines for when patients need more time so we’re not rushing them through appointments.”
We’re voting to move forward with NUHW — not back into bargaining under UNAC.
“NUHW supports licensure for Registered dietitians because we are a member-led union. UNAC doesn’t represent any dietitians and as a nurses union it has never supported licensure for our profession.”
“In NUHW there’s always a voice on the other end of the phone. We’re always supported, and we always get a say in what we do. I don’t want to be swallowed into a big nurses’ union like UNAC, and I don’t want to lose the contract we just signed and negotiate a new one.”
“I wouldn’t have survived early pandemic life without NUHW. I don’t want to lose the good representation I get from my NUHW stewards or the benefits of the contract that we just signed. We’re making good progress as NUHW. There’s no reason to give that up and go right back into bargaining.”
UNAC is a nurses’ union that doesn’t prioritize our interests.
“UNAC was not responsive to us. We were represented by UNAC for over two decades, they only let people down.”
