Who we are

Our Leaders & Staff

Please Note : Due to the ongoing and ever-evolving COVID-19 global pandemic, all NBNU Labour Relations Staff are handling an abnormally high volume of email and phone inquiries.

We are doing our best to answer all questions within 48 hours; however, in order to best protect the health and safety of our members, we will be addressing COVID-19 related occupational health and safety questions as priority items.

Please be assured; we will answer all questions. We appreciate your anticipated patience.
