WSNA is contin­uing to utilize all avail­able tools to protect the inter­ests of Astria nurses while Astria moves through the bankruptcy process. Recent examples of this work include:

  1. Carefully monitoring bankruptcy filings and other devel­op­ments related to Astria’s ongoing attempts to reorganize.
  2. Filing griev­ances and claims in bankruptcy court to protect nurses’ inter­ests in accrued PTO/​vacation time.
  3. Filing a WARN suit over Astria’s failure to give legally required notice before closing ARMC

In the meantime, we encourage all nurses to remain vigilant by checking your 401(k) accounts and HSA accounts. You should make sure that all money deducted from your paycheck has been deposited in the proper accounts. While we are not expecting any problems, we would like to know of any concerns as soon as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Carmen Garrison at cgarrison@​wsna.​org.
