Union Financials

Even though it's a relatively young organization, the National Nurses United (NNU) is still a business - a business looking to grow in membership and in revenue. Like all unions, the NNU has to file an LM-2, a kind of tax return, with the government each year to report all its finances.

In 2023, the NNU stated on its LM-2 report that it collected it more than $16 million in total receipts, which includes dues and taxes on members. Even with that amount of money coming in, the Union still somehow managed to pay out over $11.4 million.

A chunk of the money is paying top union official salaries and costly operating expenses. The NNU paid more than $2.2 million for the combined salaries and expenses of its officers and employees.
