Association Grievance Updates

Pool step placement and SOU staffing step two arguments have been completed. We have filed these grievances secondary to staffing levels on SOU and pool nurses denied step advancement.

Arbitration Update

Briefs (written arguments) are due to the arbitrator in April, we do not expect a decision in the case of nurses who were placed on indefinite LOA due to a medical or religious accommodation until mid to late summer.

Representation Change

It has been my pleasure to get to know the nurses of Wenatchee. As of April 15, Laurie Robinson will be the WSNA nurse representative as I transition back to full time bedside nursing.

Laurie is a veteran nurse with over 30 years of ED and trauma coordinator experience, and years as a WSNA grievance officer before becoming WSNA staff. She has been a nurse representative for over three years and has been representing the nurses at Astria, Kadlec, Walla Walla Veteran’s Home, and the Benton Franklin Health District.

She can be reached by email at lrobinson@wsna.org or by phone/text 206-620-4136.

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.
