By an overwhelming majority, members have ratified their contract. The solidarity and strength of WSNA members led to this historic victory. Thanks to Amy Black­burn, Ahmir Buen, Oakley Myers and Katy Heffernan for being willing to witness and certify the count Friday night with members of the negoti­ating team.

Now the real work begins: All of us must partic­i­pate in our union and make staffing and working condi­tions better. Sign up for commit­tees, complete Staffing Complaint/​ADO forms and continue the dialogue with each other and your WSNA Local Unit Officers.

In Unity from your Negoti­ating Team,

Linda Burbank, Janet Stewart, Melissa Garcia, Sally Budack, Tiffany Repar, Richie Tiamzon, Francine Gumina, Matthew McGuire, Rachael DeSouza, and Chelsey Roos
