Through collective bargaining and lobbying with governments with other members of the Community, unions have minimum standards: the majority of nurses participate in the D-R plan for health care workers, which protects their incomes in the event of long-term illness and disability for two-thirds of their income. The employer pays the entire premium up to 2.3%. Below are some scenarios to show how a change in classification affects nurses who receive the long stage of service. For example, an LPN may change RN classifications; or a nurse II, III, IV or V could receive transport to a higher classification. (In all cases, “20 years of service” refers to the definition given in section 2105.) A collective agreement is a written and binding contract between the Union and the employer, which sets out the terms of employment. The Manitoba Nurses Union is constantly sought to improve working conditions, wages and benefits through the negotiation of new collective agreements. The parties also agree that this lump sum payment will be made to the nurses concerned during a salary period that will follow the last day of the two-day period following the September 30 period of each year. The majority of nurses participate in the HEBP Dental Plan, which understands that the collective agreement for HSA nurses is negotiated between employers and the nursing bargaining community representing nurses from the Health Sciences Association and the BC Nurses Union. The BCNU is the largest union in the NBA. Currently, approximately 900 HSA members are covered by this agreement. Important collective agreements are available below as MDPs.

One of the characteristics of trade unionism in the workplace is a collective approach to wages and conditions of employment. The majority of nurses are eligible for group living benefits at Den Ceraus through HEBP, which covers up to four times their salary in the event of death. There are also accidental deaths and reports of dismemberment. The majority of nurses contribute to a defined benefit pension plan through the Health Workers Retirement Plan (HEPP). Benefits are competitive in the health market and benefit from a higher early retirement regime. The benefit depends on your contribution years in the plan. We are a member-oriented organization that focuses on the needs of New Brunswick nurses.

The Union assists its members in negotiating collective agreements with employers. Negotiating a collective agreement protects the rights of members, individually and collectively, and is an important part of our advocates for our members. All NBNU collective agreements are negotiated on the basis of the care sector. Throughout our history, we have negotiated many collective agreements, each a step toward a better life for nurses and their patients, clients and residents.
