Recently WSNA filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge with the Federal Government against Peace Health St. John for the unilateral implementation of several policies related to Covid-19 and direct dealing with nurses regarding the implementation. While there are policies that WSNA does not fully disagree with, there are some that that present significant changes to working conditions. It is imperative that PeaceHealth honor your right to bargain any changes to hours, wages, and working conditions. As the advocate for RNs at PeaceHealth St. John it is our intention to ensure your voices are heard and that our right to bargain over changes to your working conditions is preserved.
Please contact your nurse representative Travis Elmore, at email@example.com or 206 – 575-7979 ext. 3117 with any questions or comments.
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:
