Strength in Numbers

Members like you, your colleagues, families and co-workers, are the backbone of VFHNP. Together we have created an inspiring, energetic, hardworking and conscientious organization that continually advocates for improvements in our work environment, patient safety and quality care on the local, state and national level.

Our Members Make Us Strong!

Our union is built on commitment, cooperation and community. Together we make a difference in our workplace and in our communities. Our collective strength maximizes our political power, unifies and amplifies our individual voices, and provides a foundation and a means for meaningful change.

As members of VFNHP, we continually support and celebrate one another, improving the shared experience of community for all of us in the process; but it does not end there…

By your side, On your side, Because we care.

We are all extremely proud of the work we have accomplished together in our community, at UVM Medical Center and of our extraordinary achievements reaching out to others. The vitality and strength of our union depends on our members’ unique character and commitment, and we will continue to strive to maintain a strong union for Vermont and for our future.
