New Client: Michigan Nurses' Association

The Michigan Nurses' Association represents 10,000 registered nurses throughout Michigan. They began exploring alternative membership software systems after becoming concerned about the future support options of their custom developed software. UnionWare was in their top 4 choices and slowly we made our way to their final selection! This July, we will begin MNA's project to implement our Membership, Finance and Organizing Modules. Welcome to UnionWare MNA!

Summit 2013: Sold Out “sort of”

UnionWare Summit 2013, April 15-17, is proving to be a very popular one with over 70 of you registered so far! We have used up our block of rooms but if you are still interested in going let us know; we have a few ideas up our sleeve! As in past years, the focus of the Summit will be on Product Direction. It's a great opportunity to see what we've been up to and have a say in where we are going. For those of you who have not yet attended a Summit, much of the value is in meeting other UnionWare clients, sharing ideas and making contacts at other unions. This year's Summit will be in the heart of the northern California wine country and there may be just a bit of fun planned with this in mind! Contact the Summit Planning Team to register today! Registration closes March 1, 2013.

New Client: Service Employees Union Local 800

SEU Local 800, located in Montreal, Quebec, represents over 20,000 members in a variety of sectors.

Once live they will have the Membership, Finance and Cases modules as well as a customized insurance piece to help them administer their own group insurance policy. Welcome to UnionWare SEU Local 800!

New Client: Manitoba Teachers' Society

The Manitoba Teachers' Society (MTS) is the collective bargaining and professional development organization for all of Manitoba's 15,000 public school teachers. Just like many of our clients, MTS approached UnionWare because their current custom system was no longer working for them and costing them more every year to maintain. They were very impressed that UnionWare would match the majority of their requirements and that we have experience with so many other teachers unions. Their UnionWare Implementation will consist of Membership, Cases, Events, Finance, Member Portal and the Online Event Registration. Welcome to UnionWare MTS!
