Your WSNA negoti­a­tion team met with Skagit Regional Health admin­is­tra­tion for our second contract bargaining session on Wednesday, May 30. 

Admin­is­tra­tion has made proposals that jeopar­dize the security of our retire­ment and health benefits.

We have our work cut out for us — let’s show them that we are up to this! 

How you can help your WSNA negoti­a­tion team get the best contract: 

  1. Wear a WSNA button every day you are at work. 
  2. Attend a CEO Forum and speak to Brian Ivie in support of our WSNA negoti­a­tion team: 
    • June 5 in the main campus, Sahalee Room
      • 7:30 — 8:30 a.m.
      • Noon — 1 p.m.
      • 5 — 6 p.m.
    • June 6 in the River­bend Clinic confer­ence room
      • Noon — 1 p.m.
    • June 13 in the River­bend Clinic confer­ence room
      • 7 — 8 a.m.
    • A WSNA member will hand you a cheat sheet” before you speak to him so we are all saying the same message in support of our contract negotiations.
  3. Mark your calendar for a drop-in style WSNA meeting on June 12 from 4:30 — 8 p.m. at Round Table Pizza in Mt Vernon. Your WSNA RN bargaining team wants to meet with you!
  4. Talk about negoti­a­tions while you are at work and on break. The break­room is always a safe place for this. We want our managers to know that nurses are talking about contract negotiations. 

Our next contract bargaining session is Tuesday, June 5. Stop by the WSNA table that day from 11 a.m. — 3 p.m. to get real time” updates from WSNA organizers. This is also a great way to get buttons, to share issues and to find out how YOU can help us all get the best contract.
