What is next? I have turned this question over in my mind every day for the past year, but never so often as in the past few months. We are living in unprecedented times.
It has been a very interesting 14 months for me since being elected vice president. I, along with so many other nurses, had little idea how much COVID-19 would change the way we do the business of the union, and the way we deliver health care.
This year we've continued to focus on providing members with the services they need while ensuring the union maintains its strong financial position. Achieving this balance is essential for the health of the union, and we've been successful by relying on several key financial indicators when managing funds.
This year, much of BCNU’s ongoing work to safeguard our members’ health and safety builds on the union’s successful lobby efforts last year that saw nurses included in WorkSafeBC presumptive mental injury legislation.
Organizational success is worth celebrating whenever a goal is achieved, be it short- or long-term. As executive councillor responsible for pensions, the long-term financial security of our members remains my number one goal.
