Latest update

Tentative Agreement on Extended Call Back Pay

We have reached a tentative agreement with hospital management on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to bring the St. Clare Hospital Collective Bargaining Agreement (the contract) in line with language at St. Joseph Medical Center. This MOU will allow nurses who work beyond their scheduled shift while on call back status hours to be paid double time for extra hours depending on shift length. Follow the link to see the MOU for more details.  A big shout out to Ngan Van who brought this issue to our attention and fought hard to make sure that nurses are paid the fair wage they deserve!

To get this MOU into the contract it must pass a vote of bargaining unit members. We will be holding a vote in the hospital on 5/29 from 1600-2000, and the local unit officers endorse a YES vote. Please come by and cast a vote!

In Solidarity,

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

As a union member, you have the right to have a representative present in any meetings with management that could potentially lead to disciplinary action against you.

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.

Find out more about this crucial right and how to exercise it to ensure your fair treatment and protection.
