At our local unit meeting last week, I announced that Jayson Dick will be your new nurse repre­sen­ta­tive as of June 1.

It has been a pleasure to be your nurse rep for the past 12 years. This was a very diffi­cult decision to make and you will all have a special place in my heart. I’ve always had a good working relation­ship with you all and your current officers are very dedicated. I will truly miss working with you.

I will finish any business I am currently working on at Astria Sunny­side including insur­ance rates for full time employees, super users, subject matter experts letter of under­stand­ings and any current griev­ances filed by me. Moving forward, Jayson will be working closely with the officers and with you for this year’s negoti­a­tions. He will also attend Nurse Practice/​Conference Committee. Going forward, please direct your questions/​concerns to him.

You are in very capable hands with WSNA Nurse Rep Jayson Dick. You can contact him at or call/​text his cell at (206) 858‑2139.

Wishing you all the very best and thank you for working with me.
