The QNU has a firm commitment to facilitating action to achieve positive social change.
The Australian trade union movement has long been a vehicle for social change, where member action has made a real difference to the lives of others.
The QNU continues to develop capacity (through education, policy development and the provision of resources) within the Union to ensure members are better able to act as agents for positive social change.
QNU members’ participation in social campaigns at a local, national and international level has resulted in positive change for people across the globe.
Ongoing social justice initiatives include:
- Sponsoring the joint Social Charter for Nursing and Midwifery.
- Committing to the Australian Nursing Federation’s Reconciliation Action Plan to achieve Indigenous self determination and health equality.
- Ongoing support for Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA.
- Acting as secretariat for the Public Hospitals, Health and Medicare Alliance of Queensland (PHHAMAQ) which brings together like minded organisations concerned about the maintenance of our universal health system in Australia.
- Supporting Brisbane’s 139 Club, a centre which supports people who are homelessness or at risk of homelessness, through funding raised at our annual International Nurses’ Day breakfast run.
- The QNU also encourages members to support GetUp! initiatives and activities. GetUp! is an independent, grass-roots community advocacy organisation giving everyday Australians opportunities to get involved and hold politicians accountable on important issues.
The QNU is also a member of numerous organisations which all have a directly relevant link to the social objectives of the Union.
