Wsna Collective Bargaining Agreement

Hours Review – The parties agreed on a new agreement stipulating that every active day and day that worked day and day or before June 1, 2017 and was employed continuously without interruption of service had its daylight hours checked within 90 days of ratification. The details of the audit are detailed as part of the control agreement. At the end of the review, all necessary increases will be made for the next available salary period, as provided by the employer. The agreement includes the rollover contract, the pro plan agreement and the Northwest Hospital Transition Agreement. Here are some new provisions for UwMC members regarding members of the negotiation. Those represented by a local negotiating partner often pay several related organizations, such as national and national organizations, but also regional, governmental and national labour councils. WSNA members also fund the American Nurses Association, the American Federation of Teachers, the AFL-CIO and the Washington State Labor Council. UW has agreed with WSNA on a rollover contract for RNs at UWMC. This means that most of the provisions of the current contract will be deferred to the 2019-21 contract, which will come into effect from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2021. People have many reasons for not wanting to support the union. Some simply do not believe that the services provided by the union are worth the costs.

Others may find that the union`s unique agenda does not serve them well because they are new to the world of work, have a specialty that is not recognized in the negotiations, or they think their effectiveness is under-compensated. Some are dissatisfied with the union`s role in the possibility and defence of underperforming workers. Many find the union`s political activity and the use of levies to advance partisan concerns, candidates and ideologies in poor taste. Still others believe that union officials are corrupt and not responsible for their affiliation. No no. All provisions of the collective agreement between the union and your employer continue to determine your employment. Your wages, health benefits, retirement and everything governed by the collective agreement remain unchanged if you opt out of WSNA. Keep in mind that you have a personal vacation to use before your vacation. This is an advantage that you do not want to compromise until the end of the year to try to use it. Look for a 2% pay increase from July 1 of this year. On January 1, the integration was live with UWMC NW Hospital, with UW NW RNs linked to UW benefits and other regulatory changes related to government personnel.

Let`s welcome these RNs into the UWMC system! Any questions? Contact WSNA Nurse Representative Ed Zercher at ezercher@wsna.org.
