Even though National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH) was built early in 1895 and has nearly 7000 employees now, National Taiwan University Hospital Union (NTUHU) was not established until 2018, which was recognised as one of the most iconic events in the history of medical profession. Since then, NTUHU has been committed to eliminating workplace irregularities, improving employee’s benefits, and enhancing health care quality in NTUH.
成員與組織 Membership and Leadership of NTUHU
We now have 250 members, including nurses, pharmacists, administrators and doctors working in NTUH, and our Union also runs a core team to deal with complaints from clinical healthcare workers and to negotiate with the management for labor rights. The team is composed of a group of experienced nurses and a freshman secretary.
The above-mentioned members are all voluntary, but we also have a full-time secretary as a key person.
NTUHU members usually collaborate with Taipei Doctors Union to strive to improve working conditions and labors’ participation in management level.
財務 Finance of NTUHU
It is vital that NTUHU raises its funds neither from the government nor from specific politicians. Instead, these 250 members provide individual financial support to ensure the core value of independent operation.
Although the members of the Union are in a relative minority in the hospital, we have brought considerable influences in the past three years. However, we are looking forward to a continuously growing number of members which allows the Union to be more strengthened and prosperous to advocate for a more sufficient workforce and a better workplace for all NTUH’s employees.
