Your WSNA leadership team is looking forward to seeing you on Saturday at our special family friendly union event at the Bishop Complex! We want to do something special to recognize the hard work, dedication and the sacrifice made by you and your family since the hospital does not recognize its employees with a summer picnic. On July 17, our FREE picnic and rally at the Bishop Complex will be from 1300 – 1600 for RNs and their families! There will be:
Free food from La Salvadorena
An ice cream truck with free ice cream
Music from local musicians
A bouncy house
A clown and balloon twister
A contract negotiations update
This should be a lot of fun for the entire family. We look forward to seeing you all on July 17!
Please bring a blanket and lawn chairs as seating will be limited.
In Solidarity, Your negotiating team: — Jason Kindle, Ryan Housden, Kala Winter, Jennifer Reynolds, Jayme Garrison, Michelle Phillips, Kim Scott
Please contact Travis Elmore, WSNA Nurse Rep at telmore@WSNA.org or 206 – 575‑7979 ext. 3117 with questions or to find out what you can do to support the effort to get your fellow RNs a fair contract!
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.
