We’re almost there! As you know, we ratified the contract in June. The process has taken much longer than anticipated. The contract is ready for signatures. We anticipate getting the signatures when we meet with management for Conference Committee on September 9. Once that is done, the contract will get uploaded electronically. A notification will go out to all once it is available online.
It’s our understanding that the settlement from our payroll grievance has been sent out. If you believe you should have received the back pay and have not received it, please let your WSNA Nurse Representative, Carmen Garrison (firstname.lastname@example.org) know. The affected nurses were those who are permanent charge, STAT, Resource.
The retro pay for all CWH RNs covered by our contract has been distributed. If you didn’t notice the extra pay in one of your recent checks, please contact payroll.
A special thanks to your negotiating team for all their hard work. Susan Chapman, Judy McBride, Samantha Goff, Crystal Clabaugh, Stefanie Gates, Lorna Sebastian, Michele Rae, Amanda Cortes, Nick Jackson and Paul Molenaar.
