Our current contract expires at the end of September 2020.
The nurses at Kindred First Hill have already made significant concessions to benefit the employer. We want to hear from each of you about what is a priority for you and your family for this next contract cycle.
Please bring your voice to the team and complete the survey before close of business day on August 14!
In preparation for negotiations, when completing the survey please make sure your home email address and cell phone is current as we will be communicating by email and text messages. In addition it might be helpful to add the address email@example.com to your contact list so that emails do not go to your junk or spam folder.
Tell us what is important to you!

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.
