We understand that there have been some administrative changes at Kadlec recently. While these are changes within human resource practices your Union Officers will be taking concerns to management during the next conference committee on 1/21.
As you know, your WSNA representatives and officers meet monthly with Kadlec Administration to address concerns like these. On 1/21 your Kadlec officers will be asking for clarification on PTO use on holidays. They will also be addressing which codes need to be reentered once clocking back in from lunch. We have been hearing mixed messages from nurses regarding with codes are carrying over and which are not. Lastly, we want to address the contract. While there is still an unresolved issue with finalizing the contract it is still currently being honored on both sides.
Your officers: Martha Galvez (Birth Center) – Chair Jacob Garcia (CDU) — Vice-Chair Vanessa Douglas (ICU) — Secretary Meri Bukovinsky (CDU) – Treasurer Kathy Peot (Resouce)- Grievance officer Andrew Louviere- (OR) Member-At-Large
For any concerns or questions you may contact WSNA Nurse Representative Debi Bessmer at email@example.com
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.
