PeaceHealth United General Medical Center

WSNA nurse representative change

Dear United General WSNA nurses,

Please welcome WSNA Nurse Representative Sue Dunlap, MN, RN, COS-C!

Beginning Monday, Dec. 10, 2018, Sue will be taking over all issues as they arise at PeaceHealth United General Medical Center. I will be assisting Sue with this transition in the coming months as needed.

Sue can be reached at SDunlap@wsna.org or at 206-575-7979, ext. 3005.

It has been a pleasure working with you over the past several years. I am continuing my work here at WSNA as a nurse representative with new assignments. I will miss you all but know you will be in good hands with Sue.

All my best to you,

Barbara Friesen, MS, BSN, RN
WSNA Nurse Representative

Your new contract was ratified!

Thank you all for coming in to vote on the new contract. We hope to have the final copies online in the next few weeks, but most likely it may be after the holidays. We believe retro pay will be paid out on your Dec. 29th check, although payroll hasn’t yet confirmed if that can be accomplished.

We want to thank the nurses who generously donated their PTO to help offset the loss of income for taking time off to negotiate the contract. We are sincerely touched by your donations.

For those who did not get the opportunity to donate, you still can do so. You can either print the PTO donation form found here and return it to any of the negotiating team members listed below, or you can get a form from one of the members and return it to them.

Please consider donating an hour or two of PTO to this team that worked hard getting you a great contract.

Thank you,

Megan Hill, RN
