NPAAU Submits Labour Relations Board Application for AHS and Covenant Health NPs!


EDMONTON, Alberta – Today, the NPAAU filed an application to the Alberta Labour Relations Board (“ALRB”) to become the bargaining agent for AHS and Covenant Health nurse practitioners.

“This is a historic achievement for Nurse Practitioners in Alberta,” President Mary-Elizabeth Cooper said.  “I would like to thank the tireless volunteers for their hard work, and the overwhelming support from NPs across the province who have joined our movement.  We all built this organization together and, with your continued support, we are one step closer to becoming the voice of NPs in Alberta!”

Next Steps

The next steps include review of the application by the ALRB and an eventual vote.  David Froelich, with decades of union & bargaining experience in Alberta, and Michelle Henderson, who has years of experience with national public unions, both reiterated that there is still work to be done: “We must continue the momentum and foster our growing team of supporters – if you want to join the team, don’t hesitate in joining us today!”

The Nurse Practitioners Association of Alberta – Union was formed to be the unique voice of NPs in Alberta. The NPAAU is supported by an experienced team of union organizers and negotiators and the law firm Alberta Counsel.  The NPAA is dedicated to the representation of NPs by NPs.
