On Nov. 18, 2019 your contract negoti­a­tion team met with hospital manage­ment for our 3rd bargaining session. We received a full proposal from hospital manage­ment that included economics. Grays Harbor Commu­nity Hospital is proposing a 1 year contract with no wage increases, elimi­na­tion of sick leave in its current form, manda­tory call for low census and changes to vacation language.

Our next meeting with hospital manage­ment is set for Dec. 13, 2019.

Before we meet with hospital manage­ment, we want to hear from the member­ship!

We have sched­uled a local unit meeting on Dec. 2, 2019. There will be two 1‑hour sessions. The first session will be from 5:30 — 6:30 p.m. The second session will be from 7:30 — 8:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held in Confer­ence Room C. Please note that this meeting date has been changed from the previ­ously adver­tised Dec. 5 date.

Each session will begin promptly, however the WSNA repre­sen­ta­tives will be happy to answer questions and listen to feedback at the comple­tion of each session.
