National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW)

The National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) is a worker-led movement dedicated to improving the lives of caregivers and patients.

NUHW was founded by healthcare workers who wanted a union where members call the shots and control their own destiny. Our union comprises more than 15,000 members whose hospitals and clinics rely on them to provide top quality care and service. With members leading the way, we’ve established our union as a leading advocate for mental health parity and safe staffing levels.

We’ve become the nation’s fastest growing healthcare union because we stay true to our core principles:

  • A strong union is led by its members;
  • Worker power is the foundation of a just society;
  • Quality patient care requires that caregivers have a voice in their workplaces and are protected from retaliation;
  • Healthcare is a human right.

Working together, we are committed to expanding health care access, improving patient care, and defending the right of all workers to earn good wages and feel secure in their jobs.
