MNU President Sandi Mowat announces retirement

Publish date: Wednesday, December 06, 2017

After almost a decade as the voice of nurses in Manitoba, MNU president Sandi Mowat has announced that she will not be seeking re-election.

During her time as president, MNU has made significant gains for nurses and patients alike.

Her progressive leadership led the way in achieving strengthened abuse-free regulations for nurses supported by the protection and enforcement of provincial law, a first in Canada.

She continued her fight for nurses to have safer workplaces and in 2015, Manitoba became the first province in Canada to enact presumptive PTSD legislation that is inclusive of nurses.

A strong negotiator, she was instrumental in achieving a jointly funded COLA fund for all health care workers.

“Representing Manitoba’s nurses has been the great honour of my life, and I want to thank each and every MNU member for this privilege” said Mowat. “I also want members to know that we have still have a lot of work to do in the coming months. We will continue to stand up for our patients and for nurses in the face of  government cuts. And I will continue to do everything in my power to make sure your voices are heard.”

Mowat will serve as president until her term ends on June 30, 2018. An election for president will be held at the 2018 Annual General Meeting.
