December 11, 2017
LONDON – The Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA) is excited to welcome new members to our Union.
Registered Nurses (RNs) working to provide quality patient care to the residents of the Village of Glendale Crossing in London have overwhelmingly voted in favour of joining ONA. Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN, ONA President, says she is “honoured that RNs at the Village of Glendale Crossing have entrusted ONA to be their voice.
“ONA is the union of choice for nurses and health-care professionals, and we do our very best to be a strong advocate for our members and their patients,” she said. ONA represents members providing care in all sectors of Ontario’s health-care system.
“In long-term care, residents increasingly suffer from multiple, complex and chronic health conditions that benefit from the skills and experience RNs bring,” she said. ONA continues to get loud about the need for more hands-on RN care for nursing homes.”
We are proud to welcome Village of Glendale Crossing registered nurses to ONA and look forward to providing excellent services, representation, better wages, benefits and a higher quality of work life to them,” she said.
ONA is the union representing 65,000 registered nurses and health-care professionals, as well as 16,000 nursing student affiliates, providing care in hospitals, long-term care facilities, public health, the community, clinics and industry.
