Gillian (Jill) Wells
We are pleased to inform you that the Board of Health approved your new WSNA contract during their meeting in December!
Next steps, attorneys from both sides will work together to incorporate the new language with changes to create a clean, final document. Once this is done, we will alert you via email or Group Me to let you know the final agreement is online and ready for personal download. If you are not getting WSNA emails, or would like to be a part of the WSNA/SRHD Group Me thread, email Nurse Rep Jaclyn Smedley, BSN, RN at email@example.com.
Thank you to the WSNA negotiating team members for all your hard work and perseverance in such a great agreement!

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:
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.
