MNA is the largest, most effective union for RNs in Michigan. Organizing a union in your workplace is the first positive step in gaining a seat at every table where decisions are made that affect you, the patients you serve, and your nursing practice. MNA's extensive knowledge in nursing and collective bargaining assists Michigan RNs in building strong unions and exemplary contracts in their facilities. In 2009, MNA affiliated with National Nurses United which with 150,000 members is the largest union of RNs in the country.
Advance your professional concerns
When nurses raise ONE STRONG VOICE, solutions happen. MNA contracts give nurses a powerful voice in the workplace and raise the standards for the nursing profession. As a professional union, MNA provides a means to achieve professional autonomy and improve patient care. Through an MNA-negotiated contract, nurses have legal rights and protections that other RNs do not have. RNs have attained better wages, health and retirement benefits, and workplace conditions on a national scale by organizing a union. When RNs choose to build a union and be represented by MNA, it increases the effective voice of all RNs throughout MNA, Michigan, and the nation.
Protect your practice
MNA understands nursing practice in Michigan. We work to ensure that nursing’s priorities, such as mandatory overtime, staffing, workplace redesign, and health and safety in the workplace, are incorporated in decisions affecting the legal and professional regulation of your practice.
Exercise your political power
MNA’s professional union is the largest and most effective organization advocating for nurses and their patients in Michigan. We fight for legislation that not only advances nursing practice but the quality of healthcare. MNA’s affiliation with National Nurses United and AFL-CIO gives its RN union members a political avenue to effectively address critical issues with legislators and policy makers.
