We are your co-workers and the leadership of our Union at Meriter. We handle the issues that come up with management, educate members, and coordinate union activities. Click here for the nomination form.

We meet the third Wednesday of every month for one and ½ hours. We also meet with the Nursing Directors on the same day. Meeting time with the Directors is paid time. Meeting times alternate between 11:30am – 3pm and 3:30pm – 7pm so that members from different shifts can attend. Co-chair members also attend a meeting with HR called Good Relations once a month. Each unit is allowed their own representative, with a total of 22 seats. Elections will be held following the receipt of the nominations.

Nurses’ Council is a great way to help build a stronger Union and learn more about your contract!! No experience necessary, we mentor and train!
