Latest update

It is time to develop a slate of candidates for our Local Unit Officers

Our local unit’s strength and effectiveness is determined by the level of participation. Elected WSNA Local Unit Officers and appointed Unit Reps work in partnership with the WSNA Nurse Representative and are the backbone of our local unit. Overviews of each position are on the back of this form.

If you are interested in being a leader in our Local Unit or know someone who might be a great candidate, this is your opportunity to nominate yourself or someone whom you feel would fill the role well. Training for each of these positions will be provided. Officer terms are for three (3) years. All may succeed themselves.

Please nominate yourself or someone else. If you are nominating someone as Local Unit Officer, other than yourself, they will have to agree to be placed on the slate, so encourage them to run! If you are nominating yourself, please complete your own Consent to Serve form (link below).

All nominees must be members in good standing. Unit Reps are not required to complete the Consent to Serve forms and it is not an elected position. All nomination forms must be received by June 10, 2022.

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

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.
