Join The New Hospital Staffing Committee!

Do you feel passionate about safe staffing? We are seeking one to two nurses from each unit to represent their peers on the newly formed Hospital Staffing Committee, a joint committee consisting of members of WSNA, SEIU and management. Staffing Committee works to ensure that everyone is supported and addresses the concerns of staff as they arise. The Committee is also responsible for developing and voting on the staffing plans for each unit. The Hospital Staffing Committee meets virtually on the third Wednesday of the month from 8am to 9am. Each unit needs a primary and secondary staffing committee member. If you are scheduled to work during that time, your manager will try to grant you release from your duties so you may attend. At least one member per unit is entitled to compensation for their time spent in staffing committee.

If you are interested in becoming a part of the new Hospital Staffing Committee, let your WSNA Nurse Rep know! Email gchesterman@wsna.org for details and to throw your hat in the ring!

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.
