UNA’s Negotiating Committee is asking nurses to wear traditional nursing white on Wednesdays to back their bargaining committee and show their professional pride.
The committee will also be distributing RN, RPN and LPN pins that can be worn with a white uniform.
With the employer taking a hard line and demanding many drastic rollbacks to working conditions nurses have fought for since the 1970s, the committee decided a priority should be engaging members, providing information and advocating for the nursing profession and ourselves.
One action the Negotiating Committee is emphasizing is wearing white uniforms, or at least white tops, especially on Wednesdays.
So pass on the word and help us build the momentum.
Remember, for us, our profession and our patients, residents and clients: WEAR WHITE!
