Your negoti­a­tion team met with manage­ment on April 8 for our second session. Manage­ment provided an economic presen­ta­tion as well as presenting a signif­i­cant number of proposals which it will take our team some time to review. Our next session is April 22. We will continue to provide updates which will become more detailed as we progress in bargaining.

It is more impor­tant than ever that you submit Staffing Complaint/​ADO Forms to aid in providing data on the topic of staffing and breaks. It takes just 90 seconds to log an ADO using this online ADO form. It is vital for the safety of your patients that you fill out a Staffing Complaint/​ADO Form EVERY time your unit is short staffed RNs or support staff. ADOs can be about unit staffing as a whole and not neces­sarily about an individual assign­ment. This is the best way to document staffing short­falls and create a path to positive change. Please be sure to account for every missed or late break and/​or meal.
