NURSE Strength Through Collective Bargaining

Through collective bargaining, nurses speaking with a unified voice are recognized as equal partners in health care. The Michigan Nurses Association has more experience representing nurses at the bargaining table than any other organization in the state.

In today’s health care environment, collective bargaining is proving to be one of the most effective ways to protect patients from inadequate and unsafe care. It also ensures that nurses have fair pay, good benefits, and safe working conditions; establishes effective channels of communication with those who make decisions that impact nursing practice; and advances nurses’ professional growth and development.
