WSNA appreciates the feedback we have received regarding the lack of supplies in the Hospital. Your bargaining team raised these issues at the bargaining table during our session on Oct. 4. The Administration maintains that the current cash flow problem is temporary and in the process of being resolved. In the meantime, you are encouraged to bring concerns related to your ability to safely and effectively deliver care to your patients, including any lack of supplies, directly to the Chief Nursing Officer to get them resolved.
Your bargaining team received the Hospital’s assurances that the problems we are all seeing at Toppenish are temporary. While we all recognize that the Hospital has gone through several tough years, we also know that this hospital cannot rebuild without an investment in skilled and committed nurses. It is with this commitment to the future of the Hospital in mind that the bargaining team resubmitted our full economic proposal without any change. We will report back to you on the response we receive from the Hospital following our next negotiation meeting.
Your negotiation team: Jody Shively, Tanya Gutierrez, Carling Vaux, Clara Bucio, Diane Paulakis and Crystal Kosik
