Nurse Conference Committee meeting

Hello PHSKC Supervisors,

Did you know that per Article 15 of our CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement), we have the opportunity to meet regularly with King County leadership? It’s called the Nurse Conference Committee (NCC). The purpose of these meetings is to discuss mutual problems regarding supervisory issues and facilitate the resolution of all problems that may arise between the parties. It’s our opportunity to bring forth issues and concerns and work collaboratively with the county to resolve them. We will be holding this meeting quarterly.

Our next scheduled NCC meeting for supervisors and managers of CHS, prevention, and administration is April 20.

Do you have issues that you would like your officers to bring forth? We need to hear from you. Please put forth your agenda item no later than April 15 so that we can put together the agenda.

Take good care,
-Your WSNA Officers-
Sean Dumas, Nicole Klein, and Louise Peterson

Questions? Contact one of your officers or WSNA Nurse Representative Bret Percival at bpercival@wsna.org.

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.
