"The OPEIU Nurses Council was established to strengthen our nurses within the industry, both at the bargaining table and in terms of organizing new members, and these officers are dedicated to fulfilling this mission.

"Solidarity among nurses, regardless of Local Union affiliation and region, makes OPEIU a more effective representative of the nursing profession throughout the country. It also paves the way to help promote a climate of professionalism within the nursing community, promoting best practices regarding patient care, safety concerns and compensation issues," continued Goodwin.
