Thank you to everyone who came out as a show of support. Your efforts mean a lot to the entire negotiating team.
On Nov. 13, day six of negotiations, we presented a new staffing proposal. There was some movement on workplace violence from management. They assured us that they are hiring more security and will be increasing signage regarding the zero-tolerance policy on aggressive behavior. We exchanged a number of counter-proposals; however, we are still far apart on many issues. We are working on scheduling more dates to meet with management. Our next session is on Nov. 27.
Come pick up your new WSNA T-shirts Thursday, Nov. 15, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Cafeteria.
Keep an eye on your email for more updates on the Dec. 4 Unity Dinner. Be sure to RSVP! We are lining up some speakers and working on the agenda. We’ll have WSNA Attorney David Campbell there to talk about the current climate of negotiations.
