We, your WSNA negoti­a­tion team, met with manage­ment on May 29 for our first bargaining session. We passed our full proposal to manage­ment including our economic proposals. Manage­ment presented us with a benefits package proposal. We will be carefully reviewing this complex proposal as well as other proposals we will be receiving from the hospital during the next two sessions.

Our next bargaining dates are June 5 and June 27. Once we have the full proposal from the hospital, we will be able to provide you with more details.
