Latest update

Please review your pay stubs!

We have heard from multiple nurses that there have been errors on their pay stubs. These errors have included incorrect wages, unpaid premiums, missing shift differentials, partial step increases, etc. 

We have filed a grievance to resolve all pay issues, but we need to hear from you to determine who is affected and what errors need to be addressed. 

Please answer a one minute survey so we can include you in the grievance, get your wages corrected, and secure back pay if it is owed. 

If you have additional questions, please contact your nurse rep, Brenda Balogh at bbalogh@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.
