Take a Quick NOWU Tour
NOWU is a dominant Healthcare Union in Ontario, negotiating superior contracts than the other "Big Unions" and providing aggressive servicing for it's thousands of members.
Current and former members of other "Big Unions" tell us that "something is missing". Let us show you how NOWU fills that void your outdated Union is creating.
Statistically in Canada the Labour movement is shrinking, and this is happening for a reason. We believe that quite simply, Unions have failed to evolve with a diversified membership, and are striving to create 'Mega Unions'. Organizations like the CLC & OFL remove the need for competition, which then enables Unions to become lazy, apathetic, and wasteful.
If you join NOWU, you will be face to face with your employer. Not a voice lost among dozens of Hospitals or Nursing Homes that are trying to survive at a "Central Negotiating Table".
When competition is alive and active, it breeds the need to become advanced, superior, and different than those you compete with. NOWU believes that by re-introducing competition in the Labour Movement, that all workers in Canada will benefit as a result.
We believe that 'Big Unions' shouldn't be rewarded for lazy service by keeping their members simply because they're affiliated (using your dues) to the CLC & OFL.the NOWU Mission About Us
"NOWU has had our backs since before we even got a contract. They are not afraid to take management head on, and not back down from a difficult situation."
"NOWU is a truly democratic Union that fights on behalf of their members. Unlike our previous 'big union' which was barely visible, impossible to contact, and seemed to only care about our dues."
"NOWU leadership have an incredible amount of experience, which has helped Humber River Hospital workers become stronger and more protected."
"We faced many adversities at Mount Sinai Hospital from our previous Union. Don't be fooled by any misinformation SEIU spreads, we are in a far better place with NOWU."
"In September 2019 I voted to remove TEAMSTERS and make the upgrade to NOWU. I made this decision due to their extensive Healthcare knowledge and experience, and their willingness to take action."
