Warning! 84 workplaces without local representation

The 84 NSWNA workplace branches listed here are no longer operating because they did not hold or complete their 2012 elections.

While members of these former Branches may apply to the Council of the Association to join another Branch, without a Branch at your workplace your local representation and powers are limited.

A Branch gives you a voice at work. It gives you authority to meet, discuss and negotiate with your management under the umbrella of, and with the full backing of, the NSW Nurses’ Association.

A Branch is your source of collective power for tackling large issues such as inadequate staffing, hospital closures, occupational health and safety issues.

Branches also take up individual issues for members and are a source of advice and support close at hand.

Importantly, Branches give every individual member a chance to influence state action at the bi-monthly Committee of Delegates, and set Association policy at the Annual Conference.

Don’t go without – you may not have a problem today but there’s always tomorrow and you need to be organised. Management is well organised with human resources departments, employer associations, and in the public sector, NSW Health, ready to step in. Not to mention the bevy of solicitors they can drum up at a moment’s notice.

The bottom line

You have three choices:

  1. Talk to nurses in your workplace and get support for your local Branch to be reformed. Then contact the NSWNA for help with the process;
  2. Write to the Council of the Association and request a transfer to another Branch. This is possible but does not give you as much influence in your own workplace; or
  3. Do nothing and hope you never need the support of your colleagues in taking a united stand. Remember, you are stronger when you speak with the voice of a determined group of nurses and midwives!

The choice is yours but think carefully, is there really a choice?

Contact your NSWNA organiser to re-form your Branch – 8595 1234 (metro) and 1300 367 962 (non-metro).
