SEIU Healthcare: Nursing Division

Our Nursing Division was founded in June 2006 to enhance, promote and protect the role of nurses in all practice settings. Today, we represent almost 15,000 RPNs, PSWs and RNs.

Working on behalf of our members, our goals are to:

  • Enhance patient care
  • Protect and strengthen our public healthcare system
  • Improve working conditions
  • Build a better future for nurses and their families.

We are the only union with a dedicated nursing division to address the specific issues nurses face. We have a unique history of bargaining separately with hospitals and nursing homes.

No other union in Ontario has done as much to promote the critical role of RPNs in all healthcare sectors, including hospitals, nursing and retirement homes, homecare and community services.
