Who and What: If you have not signed the crucial petition that so many Evergreen RNs have....yet 🙂 Your peers need the help of ALL Evergreen RNs to make this collective action truly matter and for the employer to take heed and ACT!
Why: To achieve the improvements Evergreen RNs and patients need and deserve, it will take a super majority of the nurses to make this a REALLY impactful action. The WSNA nurses have learned that direct action works and we must continue to do what works. Whether a single RN or all RNs, all departments are experiencing inconsistent, inadequate staffing and related factors that place Evergreen RNs and patients at risk. Let's take this big action together to prevent that. Evergreen RNs and the patients you care for deserve this and more. You are not alone. This is a legally protected activity. No Evergreen RN left behind! Petition activists may not have seen you and/or you have not signed on, yet. Stay tuned for the next steps to amplify this action next week.
When: Today or ASAP before Feb. 20, takes just 1-2 minutes

To quote Karen in EHCS: "When one nurse (or healthcare worker) is targeted or scapegoated in our midst, then that puts even more pressure on us all. We and our patients are even more at risk. The safest strategy for all of us is to stick together and push, push, push for safe staffing, rational scheduling, and enough rest for the workers. All the time. Every day. It's about our community y'all!"
When Evergreen RNs unite in action, everybody wins!

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.
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.
