“For some years now the welfare of Nurses and Midwives was left unattended to until the emergence of UPNMG,” the statement said.
“The union has served as an eye opener for other unions within the Nursing and Midwifery fraternity to start thinking about their members.”
It added: “As young as UPNMG is, we have made a lot of giant strides from the introduction of the first ever hire purchase in the fraternity to the insurance package that covers members and their immediate relations without having to contribute anything more than what they are already paying.”
