MNA logoLocal 3 SEIU supports MNA nurses and health professionals in their labor actions and negotiating efforts to ensure a safe and productive environment for themselves and their patients.

MNA nurses and health professionals in Massachusetts enjoy the power and protection of collective bargaining and collective action.

MNA union members have negotiated landmark contract language to:

  • Prevent mandatory overtime and mandatory on call.
  • Prevent the replacement of nurses with unlicensed personnel.
  • Prevent the common management practice of using "float" nurses inappropriately.Regulate the introduction of new technologies.
  • Establish staffing guidelines and ratios.Improve health and safety (i.e. safer needle systems, workplace violence prevention and safe patient handling initiatives).
  • Provide new benefits such as HIV insurance and retiree health insurance.

We urge all members to read more about their stellar work and follow their News and Events page to be better informed and at-the-ready to support their work.
