Latest update

We have a contract!

On Feb. 3, WSNA RNs turned out in record numbers and an overwhelming majority voted to ratify the contract. The EvergreenHealth Board approved this contract on Feb. 4. The contract still needs to be finalized and prepared by WSNA and the employer. We will notify and post it on the WSNA EvergreenHealth webpage once it is complete. The team fought hard for this contract. Please take a moment to thank them!

Advocating for our working conditions doesn't end at this contract. Now is a great time to get involved! Please reach out to any of your WSNA Officers, bargaining team members, Nurse Rep, or Nurse Organizer Tara Barnes, tbarnes@wsna.org for more information.

  • The 6 percent pay increase is retroactive to November 1, 2021. The employer will have two full pay periods to calculate the amounts due.
  • The first retention bonus payment to all those who qualify will be paid on March 11, 2022. Check the contract summary for more details.

Please don't hesitate to contact Nurse Rep Bret Percival for any questions or concerns at bpercival@wsna.org.

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

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.
