WHERE: Corner of Mill Plain and Mother Joseph Place
WHY: Your bargaining team has met 6 times with management to bargain your contract. We were very disappointed in their initial economic proposal of raises of 1.5%, 1.5% and 1.5% for each year over the next three years of your contract. Your team is meeting on March 10 and we need you to show your support and solidarity now for the team and for your contract now.
We will be distributing buttons, stickers and badge buddies on the corner of Mill Plain and Mother Joseph place on Tuesday, March 9 from noon until 5 p.m. Come drop by for an opportunity to meet some of your negotiating team members and to pick up your WSNA gear so that you can proudly show your support and unity with the negotiation team as we continue to fight for a fair contract.
For any questions, please contact your nurse representative Mara Kieval email@example.com.
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:
