Latest update

Time clock changes

On May 23, 2023, we met for our fifth bargaining session over the changes to the time clocks, the resultant wage discrepancies and how overtime is paid / calculated.

Both parties have submitted proposals and exchanged many counterproposals. Your WSNA bargaining teams seek to remedy adverse impacts on wages, disciplinary action/coaching, low census rotation, removing PTO without your approval, contradictory instructions on clocking in/out, etc. We will be meeting again to continue bargaining.

Overtime calculations (i.e., consecutive weekend, work on day off, overtime to include shift differential) will be addressed via the grievance process while we continue to work on reaching an agreement on the effects of the time clock rounding change. Please feel free to contact any of your officers or your nurse rep for any questions or concerns.

In the meantime, to help your bargaining team, please take this short survey before midnight on May 31, 2023:

Questions? Contact WSNA Nurse Representative Sue Dunlap at sdunlap@wsna.org.

Resources and tools

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.
