Action alert: Safety for SJMC nurses

We have heard loud and clear it can be just plain scary, especially after dark in parking garages, parking lots, and outside of the hospital. Our WSNA negotiating team needs help to show management this is a big deal. We need every nurse to join together by simply following the link below to send an email to hospital leadership about the personal safety of yourself and our co-workers.

At our last negotiation session we proposed reasonable solutions to the safety issue in the parking lots. These included: keeping the sky bridge open at night for shift change, giving access to the secured underground parking garage for staff who are on call at night or have shift change between 2300 and 0700, and providing security in the parking garage 24/7. Management responded by telling us nurses could call for an escort if they felt unsafe. There are over 1,000 nurses who work here. Directing nurses to request an escort from security every night is not a plausible solution.

Join us now by raising your voice. Click on the link below and share your personal story with CEOs Gary Kaplan and Ketul Patel, and VP of HR Sharon Royne. Tell them how dangerous it can be outside of the hospital and in parking garages

Every individual email and story, expressed collectively, will make a difference!
