Contract Negotiations Survey (08/13/2015)

The current contract between WSNA and SHMC expires December 31, 2015. The survey is the first step in our preparation for contract negotiations.

Your input is critical in determining our priorities as we head to the bargaining table. It is vital that we know your issues and concerns prior to the start of negotiations.

Please take a moment to complete this survey. Give time and thoughtful consideration to your answers. This is your livelihood, your working conditions.

Remember, we would like to be an effective, strong, influential voice for you at the table. Strength comes from unity--the power of representation comes from the willingness of Registered Nurses to unite and show support through membership in WSNA. In order to have voting privileges on the upcoming contract, you must be a member prior to ratification, or present your completed application with three months’ dues at the time of the vote.

Available until August 28, 2015
