Our rules set high standards

Over the course of 2010-2012 the QNU (as it was known then) undertook an exhaustive review of our union’s rules.

This review was conducted for several reasons. Our Council deemed it necessary to improve the governance of the union and provide better clarity around roles such as branch delegates and branch representatives.

It was also necessary to streamline union processes and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our operations.

As a result the QNMU's rules are not only contemporary and easy to use, but also designed to anticipate some of the issues our professions may confront in coming years.

QNMU Member Code of Conduct


At the 2021 QNMU Virtual Conference, Delegates voted to pass a motion for a new QNMU Member Code of Conduct. 

The Code of Conduct sets out the behaviours members might expect from one another to continue to advance the industrial and professional standing of our union. 

Members are the QNMU. As a democratic union that works collectively with members to achieve the best outcomes for nurses and midwives in our communities, it’s important we undertake our vital work in the spirit of our shared nursing, midwifery and union values.
