Can you believe it is time to start thinking and preparing for contract negotiations again? It seems like we just finished the long hard struggle of getting the last contract, but our current contract between WSNA and SJMC expires Oct. 31, 2021. Even though our last negotiations were difficult we learned a lot. The most important thing we learned was that the number of nurses that actively participate in the process directly corelates to what happens at the bargaining table.
The pre-negotiation survey is our first step in preparation for our contract negotiations. It is really important that we know everyone’s issues and concerns before the negotiations start. It is also important we get huge participation from this starting point and throughout the entire negotiation process to get the best possible contract.
Please take a few minutes and take the survey now, and don’t stop there, actively participate by getting every SJMC nurse you know to take it too. Our power and strength come from all of us united and working together for the same goal.
We look forward to reading each and every survey response!
