What is organising?
Organising is when members come together and through the strength in their numbers, win meaningful improvements and positive change to their lives and workplaces. Groups identify issues, and then collectively work together to bring about solutions on their own terms.
Organising is an opportunity for you and your colleagues to take action on the issues that threaten your ability to practice safely and effectively, from being paid fairly to creating clinical practice changes to having enough staff on shift to deliver safe care.
Organising at the RCN
You and your colleagues are experts in your workplaces and are best placed to speak for your patients and the profession. And when decision makers aren’t listening, organising is way for members to collectively demand change, take action and ensure the right steps are taken by employers.
Across the UK no matter your job, employer, care setting, or issue, you can be part of the organising movement, leading on the issues that matter to you. No matter how big or small. The RCN is with you every step of the way. Together, let’s use our voices to demand the changes we deserve.
