How We Are Governed
RNUNL’s Biennial Convention is the main governing body of RNUNL. Held every second October, it presents members with an opportunity to raise and debate important issues, amend the RNUNL Constitution, as well as set the direction for the RNUNL Board of Directors for the coming two years.
RNUNL’s board governs RNUNL between conventions and meets a minimum of four times per year. The president, in consultation with the executive, directs the union between board meetings.
What’s In a Name?
In 2014, we reintroduced our union with a new union name and a new look that captures our identity.
The Registered Nurses’ Union Newfoundland & Labrador logo incorporates four pillars that represent the important work RNUNL does on behalf of registered nurses, Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, and our public health care system: we negotiate, advocate, champion, and protect.
This is a strong representation of who we are, what we do, and our critical role in labour relations and healthcare in our province.
