National Council

The Union of Health and Environment Workers’ National Council consists of a full-time National President, a National Vice-President (one full-time), and fifteen Regional Vice-Presidents from the following regions: Atlantic, Newfoundland/Labrador, Scotia-Fundy, New Brunswick/Prince Edward Island, Quebec, National Capital Region, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Prairie/Northern, Alberta/B.C./Yukon and British-Columbia/Yukon. This structure was decided upon following the merger between Union of Environment Workers and National Health Union.

The National Council meets twice a year for two or three-day business meetings. At these meetings, new policies are developed, the Policies and Regulations endorsed at Convention and/or at National Council meetings are followed and the operations of the organization are monitored.
