Effective May 19, 2020, WSNA Nurse Representative Sara Frey will be replaced by WSNA Nurse Representative Bret Percival to represent Snohomish Health District RNs. Management has been notified of this change and Sara will still be available as a resource for Bret to insure a smooth transition. Bret comes to WSNA with experience as an RN working in Emergency Medicine and Progressive Care. Bret has vast union experience and has worked alongside our union brothers and sisters to achieve the greatest good. Bret is a devout Worker’s Rights activist and looks forward to advocating for his registered nurse colleagues.
I have enjoyed working with you all as your Nurse Representative. I hope to see you all at one of our future conferences or events.
For issues or questions, Bret can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and (206) 575‑7979, Ext 3063.
If you find yourself in a situation that you believe creates unsafe conditions for patients or for you, you should complete a Staffing Complaint / ADO Form as soon as possible.
By completing the form, you will help make the problem known to management, creating an opportunity for the problem to be addressed. Additionally, you will be documenting the facts, which may be helpful to you later if there is a negative outcome.
WSNA also uses your ADO forms to track the problems occurring in your facility. When you and your coworkers take the important step of filling out an ADO form, you are helping to identify whether there is a pattern of unsafe conditions for you or your patients at your facilities. This information is used by your conference committee, staffing committee, and WSNA labor staff to improve your working conditions.
If called into a meeting with management, read the following to management when the meeting begins:
If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, I respectfully request that my union representative be present at this meeting. Without representation present, I choose not to participate in this discussion.
