President's Message

President - Aman Grewal

I and some 450 other BCNU delegates met in Vancouver Oct. 4 and 5 for the union’s provincial bargaining conference. It was an inspiring and energizing gathering, and I’m happy to report that we are now in a position to begin negotiating a new Nurses’ Bargaining Association (NBA) collective agreement. 


The BC Nurses’ Union protects and advances the health, safety, social and economic well-being of our members, our profession and our communities.
