Negotiation Survey

Your contract is expiring this year, so it’s time for the negotiation survey.  Please take the time to fill out the survey, this information is kept confidential at WSNA. Your officers and I would like to work to get the best contract possible and that starts with you. Please use the link below to take the survey:

Workplace Violence

I have heard many disturbing stories related to violence committed at the workplace. We have filed a grievance over this issue, but we need your stories to push management to take it as a real threat. If you have been the victim of workplace violence, here are the steps I need all the staff to follow:

  1. File an ADO
  2. File a police report.
    1. This is important as it opens other resources to victims, such as the crime victims’ fund.
  3. File an L&I claim.

We need you to all be upfront and honest about what is happening in your workplace. Your officers and I take this seriously and the only way we can push back is with your help.


If you have a concern or short staffing or anything else, please fill out an ADO. These are legally discoverable in court. These are also mandated to be discussed by the hospital staffing committee. I also receive a copy of the ADO, and without these forms, I don’t know if there is an issue.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to one of your local unit officers or nurse representative Stephenie Troftgruben (stroftgruben@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.
