This is a running list of resources for our WFNHP members and all healthcare workers to help get through these trying times.
WELCOME to the Wisconsin Federation of Nurses & Health Professionals
The Wisconsin Federation of Nurses & Health Professionals (WFNHP) is affiliated with AFT Nurses & Health Professionals, the national healthcare division of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).
WFNHP is a democratically run labor union of health professionals, committed to the growth and empowerment of its membership and all healthcare workers.

Our union members have been fighting for quality care and safe staffing, and now we must fight together as a community.

The Coalition to Save Saint Francis is gathering to demand that the City Council take action to maintain labor and delivery services on the South Side of Milwaukee!
Join us for a press conference and rally on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at 6PM in front of Milwaukee City Hall, 200 E. Wells St., Milwaukee, WI.
Ascension announced that they are closing all labor and delivery services at St. Francis Hospital, the only labor and delivery services on the southside of Milwaukee, effective just days before Christmas. This will cause all southside patients to have to travel out of their neighborhood and will eliminate dozens of union jobs. We must fight back to preserve these vital services for our community.
