President Darlene Jackson


Darlene Jackson is President of the 12,000 member Manitoba Nurses Union.

Jackson has over three decades of nursing experience and has been an active MNU member since 1981. Shortly after joining MNU she attended her first Annual General Meeting, and has been a committed union activist ever since.

Jackson previously served as President of her worksite in The Pas for over two decades, and on MNU’s Provincial Collective Bargaining Committee (PCBC) through 9 rounds of bargaining as representative for the North and as vice-chairperson. In recognition of her leadership, she was the recipient of MNU’s Yellow Ribbon Award in 1996.

More recently, Jackson served as MNU's board member for the Northern Region for four years, and as Secretary-Treasurer for two years. Jackson’s extensive nursing and union experience has provided her with a holistic understanding of issues facing nurses in every region of Manitoba.

Jackson believes in the collective power of nurses. Through strong teamwork and representation, she is committed to ensuring nurses practice in a safe and supportive environment, and will continue to advocate for safe, quality health care for all Manitobans.

Jackson was elected as President at AGM 2018 for a two year term beginning July 1, 2018. She succeeds Sandi Mowat who served as President since 2008.
