Many of us noted a small special payment amount on our most recent check from Skagit. The accom­pa­nying notifi­ca­tion indicated this was our ratifi­ca­tion payment.

Please note: this is not our ratifi­ca­tion bonus! This amount was merely a lump sum reflecting the 0.5% wage increase from 6/17/19 through 6/30/19 on our gross wages.

On the July 25, 2019 payday, nurses will receive the agreed-upon ratifi­ca­tion payment ($1,500 for 1.0 FTE nurses, prorated for nurses with less than 1.0 FTE, and $200 for per diem nurses).

Skagit has indicated to WSNA that it has sent out a clari­fying commu­ni­ca­tion

Thank you for all who let WSNA know of this confu­sion and rest assured the hospital is also aware of the misleading infor­ma­tion provided with this payment.
