Announcing changes in WSNA nurse representative


Please welcome WSNA Nurse Representative Terri Williams, MS, RN. Beginning Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018, Terri will be taking over all new issues as they arise at Kindred First Hill. I will finish up most outstanding matters to their conclusion and assist Terri in the coming months as needed.

Terri can be reached at twilliams@wsna.org or at 206-575-7979, ext. 3058.

It has been a pleasure working with all of the Kindred First Hill RNs for the past three years. I am continuing my work here at WSNA in public affairs. I will miss the Kindred First Hill nurses but know you will be in good hands with Terri.

All my best to you,

Travis Elmore, BSN, RN, RN-BC
WSNA Public Affairs Associate Director

Make a difference for your fellow nurses


Are you a nurse advocate or know a colleague who is? Do you want to make a difference in the working conditions for RN’s at Kindred?

Your WSNA union team here at Kindred 1st Hill is in need of a registered nurse willing to step up into the position of chair or grievance officer. Your co-workers could use your assistance! The typical time commitment is only 1-2 hours a month (on average) and WSNA provides the training.

Contact WSNA Nurse Representative Travis Elmore at 206-575-7979, ext. 3117 or telmore@wsna.org if you would like additional information regarding the duties of an officer.


Nurses, please check your paystubs...again!


Carol Hiner has reported that all RNs have now received their June raise negotiated by WSNA along with the appropriate back pay. Please check your paystubs to verify that you got your WSNA negotiated wage increase along with any applicable back pay!

If you believe that you did not receive your raise and/or applicable back pay, please contact your WSNA representative for assistance! Kindred has committed to making sure that all RNs receive the pay they deserve as well as any applicable back pay.

Questions? Contact WSNA Nurse Representative Travis Elmore at 1 (800) 231-8482, ext. 3117 or telmore@wsna.org.

All RNs must now return their membership application to WSNA. If you have not turned in your membership application, please do so as soon as possible!

WSNA Leadership Conference at Lake Chelan is set for Sunday through Tuesday, September 24-26.

Don’t miss WSNA’s popular annual labor training event at Campbell’s Resort in Chelan, Washington. RNs from across the state will convene to get updates on the state of labor, to learn how to be more effective leaders in the workplace, to celebrate our successes, and to strategize for what’s coming next.

WSNA will be sponsoring a limited number of RNs from Kindred First Hill who wish to attend this great event! This event is a great way to earn contact hours toward your license or eligible certifications! Please contact the WSNA Representative if you would like to go!
