President’s Message

Message from the President of NOWU Tim Oribine

Welcome to the online home of Ontario’s fastest growing Union- NATIONAL ORGANIZED WORKERS UNION (NOWU).

We are a progressive and inclusive Union that fights for fairness, equality and justice in our workplaces and communities.  We believe in the grass roots movement and member equality.  We pride ourselves in diversity, as you will see on the National/Local Executive Boards.

We are the only Union that gives dues back to the membership through a 10% kickback.  THE MEMBERS decide how to spend the money.

Our highly skilled Union Representatives and leadership team will advance and protect the rights of workers in the healthcare sector.  We have over 50 plus years of experience in the Labour Movement.

This union prides itself on listening to its members, providing outstanding union representation and negotiating strong Healthcare contracts. (NOWU REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEATEN CENTRAL HOSPITAL BARGAINING EVERY TIME).

Whether you are a new or long time union member,  I encourage you to visit our website regularly to find out about the latest union news, apply for the local scholarships and learn about upcoming events.

Check out our NOWU$ program and your Local portal for information on meetings, constitutions and bylaws etc. We also have a social media presence on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

If anyone would like to reach me feel free to contact me anytime.

Stay strong Sisters and Brothers

Tim Oribine

National President
