It’s time for you to elect your new union officers. Your voice matters. This week ballots were mailed to all WSNA bargaining unit members who are eligible to vote in the 2023 Local Unit Officer elections.
Please review your ballot, make your selections and return your ballot as instructed. Ballots must be postmarked no later than March 17, 2023.
If you have any questions or do not receive a ballot in the mail, please contact your WSNA Nurse Representatives or one of your local unit officers.
Did you know you can use an online ADO form to document any unsafe working condition? That includes: missed breaks, equipment malfunction, inadequate nurse to patient ratios for patient acuity, not enough support staff, nurse or patient harm… and more. Let management, administration and your Union know when things are NOT okay.
Link to file an ADO: https://www.wsna.org/union/ado
Or, you can take a photo of this QR code and save it to your phone for a direct link to our electronic ADO.
Questions or omments? Contact your WSNA Nurse Representative Janet Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org .

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.
If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at this meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to participate in this discussion.
