We had our first meeting with manage­ment. Both WSNA and CMC exchanged proposals. We intro­duced proposals regarding patient safety, staffing, wage and benefits to improve recruit­ment and reten­tion of nurses at CMC. CMC has not provided us with their economic proposals.

Our next sched­uled sessions are September 4, 16, and October 14.

In Solidarity,
Your negoti­ating team: Katrina Rodstedt, Marin Hershey, Yanis Plakos, and Oneida Duran.

ADO/​Staffing Complaint Forms are now online at wsna​.org/union/ado. These are reviewed by your Staffing Committee. We encourage you to use the online version. Copies automat­i­cally go to the LU (Local Unit) Chair, the co-chairs on the staffing committee, which includes Deanna Griggs. Please include your manager’s email infor­ma­tion so a copy goes to them as well.
