The NSNU provides education sessions and seminars at the Local, Regional and Provincial levels.
Local Education Sessions, approximately 2-3 hours in length, must be requested by the Local. Some topics include:
- Running the Union Local
- Being a Local Union Steward
- Filing and Processing Grievances
- Duty to Accommodate
- Local Communications
Regional Seminars are conducted by the Union upon direction of the Board. Topics are chosen by the Board and in the past have included Abuse of Nurses, Occupational Health and Safety, and Health Reform.
Provincial Education Sessions occur at the NSNU’s Annual General Meeting, devoted to an educational program on an issue, or issues, identified by the Board.
To request a Local Education Session, please contact Paul Curry at 1-800-657-3099 or 902-468-1862, or via email at nsnu.ca.
