WSNA recently partnered with our sister union OFNHP on July 7 to hand out 22 thousand face masks and 1000 shields to staff and community for personal use. This was possible due to a generous donation of masks and face shields from our national union AFT and Governor Inslee’s masking order effective July 7.
At that event we also launched two more actions to get CEO Sean Gregory to rescind the matrix changes effective July 1 and revert to those approved by the staffing committee and reported to the State Department of Health as directed by law.
Sign this letter to CEO Sean Gregory to show your support for reinstatement of the old matrices house wide. Hundreds of PeaceHealth SW RNs have already signed and we invite you to join us in solidarity.
We’re also asking nurses to complete ADOs every shift if need be. This is the data that supports arguments for changes in the status quo. To make that even easier for you, we have an online form for you to access from your cell phone.

Nurses at PeaceHealth Southwest are fed up with administration ignoring the process we fought hard to get into state law. Their disregard for nursing input by unilaterally implementing their own plan is not only disrespectful but puts our high standards for patient outcomes as risk.
As we prepare for another increase in COVID-19 patients, WSNA is your source for quality and trusted information. Visit the website for more information and resources to support 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.
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.
