UNA Action

What is AFSCME/UNA?
The United Nurses of America-AFSCME is more than 60,000 nurses working in unity to advance quality and accountability in the healthcare setting through organizing, political action and nursing practice. Across the country, we are reaching out to other nurses who want to join UNA-AFSCME. As our numbers grow, so does our power to improve our jobs, the care we deliver and the quality of our lives.

UNA-AFSCME

  • ON THE JOB — UNA-AFSCME nurses are winning wage, benefits and other improvements, such as prohibitions on mandatory overtime, through strong collective bargaining agreements with our employers.
  • IN THE COMMUNITY — UNA-AFSCME nurses work in coalitions and partnerships at the community level to generate public and grassroots support for our goals and the agenda of nurses.
  • IN CONGRESS AND LEGISLATURES — UNA-AFSCME nurses lobby lawmakers and political officials to enact legislation and  policies to increase health care funding, improve quality care and institute safer working conditions and protections for nurses.
