UNANet is available to all UNA Members

UNA strives to keep its members connected through effective communication. We recognize informed and empowered members are the key to success and strength.

UNA operates UNANet, a secure internal network, for communications and record keeping. As a UNA member, you are entitled to a free UNANet account, providing access to FirstClass forums, your own UNA email account and the Data Management System (DMS Web) for updating personal information, and submitting expense claims and forms. UNANet’s FirstClass forums are used by nurses to discuss everything from nursing practice issues to detailed questions about UNA’s collective agreements.

UNANet is transitioning

As I have been reporting at the Board and Districts, we will be moving off of FirstClass during this year’s Office Closure to a new email and forums platform for UNAnet. UNAnet will not be available for a few days while we transition.

I wanted to invite you to a preview of the new UNAnet. This is not the full deployment and will be missing some things, but is close and intended for you to explore and familiarize yourself with the basics.

I ask you to please login and use the preview and send feedback to systems@una.ca.

  • To access this preview go to: https://zimbra.una.ca
  • Log in with your email address jsmith@una.ca.
  • The password is your 2020 Membership Card PIN (Not the Member ID, the PIN).
  • You will see the individual modules along the top, including access to the Forums. If prompted by the forums software, the login is the same as for Zimbra. You can also access Forums independently here: https://forums.una.ca.

We have also started a help document for Zimbra. It goes over some of the basics, and you can find it here: https://help.una.ca/zimbra-getting-started-video-tutorials/.

Go ahead and play, create calendar items, post messages in the forums, and explore; nothing will be saved from this preview.
