UW Medical Center nurses vote in favor of fair share membership language


UW Medical Center nurses vote in favor of fair share membership language #

A vote to add fair share member­ship language to the UW Medical Center (UWMC) nurses’ contract passed by a large margin. The voting was done online, from June 28 to July 7, and the new policy has already gone into effect.

Prior to the imple­men­ta­tion of fair share member­ship language, member­ship to the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion (WSNA) was optional, and non-members were not required to pay for the repre­sen­ta­tion they received.

Fair share member­ship language requires nurses who choose not to be full members to pay a reduced member­ship to the WSNA.
