We are thrilled that four RNs have expressed interest in being on this year’s negoti­a­tion team. We reviewed the survey responses, consid­ered recent griev­ances and ULP as part of this compre­hen­sive review. We also reviewed the current contract looking for articles in need of updating.

A big thanks to Dave McClure for his contri­bu­tions to our discussions.

Your prior­i­ties are driven by your survey responses, the recent history of employer appli­ca­tion of contract and one-on-one conver­sa­tions with members and leaders. We will be meeting with WSNA attorney Lane Toens­meier in the next couple of weeks to set prior­i­ties and set a bargaining strategy.

We are looking at dates in late November to begin negoti­a­tions with the employer.

Feel free to reach out to WSNA Repre­sen­ta­tive Ed Zercher at ezercher@wsna.org with any questions or concerns that you may have.
