Contract negotiations have begun!

On June 10, 2020 your coalition negotiation team met with management for the first time. During this session we went over our initial proposal with management. We expect management to provide their proposal at our next session. WSNA and our negotiation coalition have agreed to meet with Department of Veterans Affairs management on June 24 and July 8 to bargain next.

As you are likely aware, the state budget forecast has taken a big hit due to the COVID crisis and will likely impact our negotiations.

Please wear any WSNA materials (buttons, badge holders, stickers, etc.) to show your support for a fair contract!
