Contract Negotiations Survey (01/15/2016)

It is time for WSNA and the negotiations team to hear from you on what issues you would like to be addressed.  Please take just a few moments to answer just a few questions on our online survey to help us better understand what is important to you.  The team uses the information that you provide as a guide in representing your priorities at the negotiation table.  Your negotiation team appreciates you taking the time to complete this very brief survey.  

The team will be primarily using email to communicate with you all so be sure to update your current home email address on the survey.

Congratulations Your Contract Was Ratified! (09/17/2013)

By unanimous vote, the nurses of Ocean Beach have ratified the contract that was diligently negotiated by your dedicated and thoughtful colleagues on the team representing your interests. Among the many enhancements to your contract is the provision for recognition for years of experience. As a current RN at Ocean Beach, you have 90 days to have your years of experience evaluated to ensure your current step level matches that number of years.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Your attorney, Laura Anderson and I would like to thank the negotiating team; Brad Bell, Marcey Frame, Mary Lane, and Denise Ross for volunteering their time, hard work, and strong advocacy for all of the nurses at Ocean Beach, the patients and families you all serve, and your practice.

In Solidarity,
