I want to be a part of a union that is transparent, supportive and encourages participation from every member. That is NUHW in a nutshell.
During a difficult period in our department, before I became a steward, both the NUHW staff and our steward at the time put their necks out for us and never gave up until we finally achieved a better working environment. It was NUHW that led this fight. No other union got involved even though several of our colleagues who belonged to other unions also needed support.
Now that I’m a steward, I understand how challenging it can be to stand up for our rights but I know it’s the right thing to do. No one wants to have to put up a fight but sometimes it is necessary and we can’t just sit in the sidelines. NUHW has always supported me and my coworkers; that’s why I will always support NUHW.
