Your team of AMR regis­tered nurses met with AMR manage­ment and attorney for our first bargaining session on Thursday, Nov. 4. WSNA offered our opening proposal and we had some encour­aging discus­sions about our goals of recog­nizing the mutual inter­ests of the employer as well as the RNs working at AMR. WSNA’s opening proposal was compre­hen­sive and included proposals on both working condi­tions and economics as well.

The employer will be working on a counter offer until our next sched­uled bargaining session set for Tuesday, Nov. 16.

For any questions or concerns, please contact bargaining team members Chris Marshall or Heidi Odupitan.

The prior­i­ties for our bargaining were devel­oped through the WSNA negoti­a­tions survey responses as well as numerous one on one conver­sa­tions with AMR RNs regarding what these should be.

We are fighting for a fair and just contract for everyone that continues to give their all each and every day in the name of safe patient care.

Stay tuned for updates.

In Unity,

Ed Zercher BSN, RN
