Quick News You Can Use

Your new contract is live!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote on your new collective barganing agreement. The CBA contains many enhancements such as changes to OT rules, a new cross training premium and a greater chance to be involved with educational needs and offerings. There is also a new provision in which you are entitled to representation by a local unit officer AND your nurse representative should you require representation in matters relating to discipline.

We’ve addressed your concerns

Recently nurses have expressed deep concern over the presentation held by the Coors Leadership Group. Your officers have communicated directly with Coors as well as Cascade administration regarding your feedback and we have been assured there will be a response from administration regarding the issues that you have brought forward.

We know that you have given more than what was asked of you through COVID and how the messaging you received was damaging. We have confidence that Cascade administration will answer these concerns in a compassionate and understanding matter.

Conference Committee

Conference committee is scheduled for October 24. We are hoping to reach an agreement for a process regarding long term vacation requests for nurses within the barganing unit. Conference committee is a contractual right where officers and your nurse representative meet with administration to bring forth concerns from the barganing unit.

Do you have a concern you would like addressed? Reach out to any one of your local unit officers.

Questions? Contact your WSNA nurse representative Shawn Mork at sreed@wsna.org.

Resources and tools

Document unsafe conditions

If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.

By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.

WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.

Representation rights

As a union member, you have the right to have a representative present in any meetings with management that could potentially lead to disciplinary action against you.

If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:

If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at this meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to participate in this discussion.

Find out more about this crucial right and how to exercise it to ensure your fair treatment and protection.
