Don't miss this upcoming event. This is your opportunity to meet with district legislators and describe a day in the life of a nursing professional, the challenges and highlights. Send a clear message that nurses are passionate about quality care and patient safety and are speaking up.
It has come to the attention of your WSNA leaders at Skagit Regional Health that Skagit Management proposed changes in the oncology clinic that may have resulted in the Reduction of FTEs and the Elimination of at least one position.
Members informed us that management requested that these clinic RNs agree to a voluntary restructure of their FTEs and hours. Some of the Nurses were NOT in agreement – and knew to notify WSNA before agreeing to any changes.
Reducing Hours - Layoffs
Eliminating Positions = Layoffs
Your Collective Bargaining Agreement [contract] protects you in layoffs. It has a clearly defined process in place agreed on by Skagit RNs and Management.
