  • Enforcing collective agreements and ensuring workplace standards are met
  • Organizing member-driven campaigns to improve working conditions and patient care
  • Advocating for both nurses and their patients
  • Providing educational opportunities and resources for the membership
  • Engaging in public and governmental relations to protect and improve health care for nurses and patients
  • Since its inception, the MNU has fought many battles to earn significant gains for Manitoba nurses. Decades of hard work, perseverance and commitment has strengthened the role of Manitoba nurses within an increasingly complex health care delivery system.
