A TRIBUTE TO SANDI MOWAT

A Tribute to Sandi Mowat

Sandi Mowat served as President of the Manitoba Nurses Union for the past 10 years. Although she is retiring from the role on June 30, 2018, she is leaving a profound and lasting legacy that will benefit nurses and patients for many years to come.Before serving as President, Mowat spent the majority of her nursing career in the E.R. department at Winnipeg's Health Sciences Centre as a Clinical Resource Nurse and a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner. She also worked as a General Duty Nurse in the HSC Haemodialysis Unit, and as a result of her leadership, was the recipient of the HSC Nursing Excellence Award.Mowat was first elected to the MNU Board in 1999; she was elected Vice-President in 2003 and President in 2008. An experienced negotiator, she represented HSC as their bargaining rep on the Provincial Collective Bargaining Committee for a number of years. As a provincial nurses' union leader, she represented her members on the ER Task Force, the Joint Nursing Council, the Manitoba Nursing Advisory Council and the Winnipeg Hospital/Health Care Regional Nursing Advisory Committee.Sandi's career featured a long-list of accomplishments. She worked with MCHCU to protect pensions and was instrumental in achieving a jointly funded COLA fund for all health care workers. Furthermore, she represents nurses on a joint implementation committee, which was formed to research and develop a model for the implementation of COLA and to make recommendations to the HEB Board of Trustees as to a COLA model and its implementation.Mowat will leave a lasting legacy on MNU and our health care system. Her commitment to improving work place safety for nurses and has worked closely with the provincial government to redefine health and safety protection in health care facilities. In 2011, she successfully lobbied the government to improve health and safety legislation. The result was strengthened abuse free regulations supported by the protection and enforcement of provincial law. She also served as the co-chair of an Advisory Group on Violence Prevention, a committee that reviews workplace security issues in health care and identifies new initiatives to strengthen safety and security for all health workers. In 2015, she successfully lobbied to have Manitoba be the first province to include nurses in presumptive PTSD legislation, along with firefighters and police.In 2013, The Canadian Federation of Nurses Union gave her its most prestigious honour: the Bread and Roses Award. The award recognizes outstanding nurse leaders who contribute to policy and decision-making, and enhance public awareness of nursing and health care.This video was created to recognize Mowat's achievements as President, and her profound impact on Manitoba's health care system.Thank you Sandi, for everything!

EXERCISE CAUTION WHEN POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA

MEMORANDUM

From: Sandi Mowat, President
Date: Wednesday, August 9th, 2017
Re: Exercise caution when posting on social media

Members across the province are experiencing the first-hand effects of the government cuts to front line health care services. Understandably, this is leading to frustration and anger.
We must caution you to please be mindful of what you post on social media. The repercussions from “speaking your mind” on social media can be far-reaching. It can result in disciplinary action. In extreme cases, it can lead to termination by the employer or the revoking of your license by the College.
We encourage you to contact the MNU provincial office if you have any questions or concerns. In the meantime, please read our article Exercising Caution when posting on Social Media
