Registered Nurses at Bethany Airdrie vote to join UNA

United Nurses of Alberta welcomes Registered Nurses employed by Bethany Airdrie in the community north of Calgary to our union.

The bargaining unit of 12 Registered Nurses voted to join UNA and their application to join the union was approved by the Alberta Labour Relations Board on April 30, 2021.

As soon as possible, UNA will negotiate a first collective agreement for the new members, who before the vote worked without representation by a union. UNA members employed at Bethany Airdrie have not yet been assigned to a UNA Local.

UNA also represents Registered Nurses and Registered Psychiatric Nurses employed at Bethany Calgary and Bethany Riverview in Calgary, Bethany Cochrane, Bethany Sylvan Lake, and Bethany Collegeside in Red Deer.

UNA provides a wide range of services to its members. A key role is negotiating the excellent collective agreements that regulate salaries, benefits, schedules and working conditions of members. UNA also administers its agreements to resolve disputes, improve working conditions and protect nurses’ workplace rights.
