Congratulations to our very credible frontline Nurses, Social Workers, CRNAs, Med Techs and Clinical Psychologists, who shared the challenges being faced each day and night in their patient care units at Jackson.
Your colleagues expressed to management at the bargaining table on Tuesday, the importance of SAFE STAFFING, and the equally important need to retain and recruit experienced nurses and caregivers in order to fulfill our fantastic mission and deliver one single high standard of care to our patients.
Our bargaining team is focused on the market adjustments necessary to retain and recruit the best in the industry, and our patients depend on it.
Vice President Grace Meatley, RN, spoke passionately on being labeled heroes during the pandemic, and how quickly this appreciation dissipated. She said, “many of our experienced CSNs feel invisible to management.”
Let’s remind management there is still a hero standing in your scrubs. We will resume sharing your powerful experiences at our next bargaining session.
Please join us on Tuesday, April 25th in DTC 270 from 2:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., as you continue to attest “SAFE STAFFING SAVES LIVES” and “EXPERIENCE MATTERS.”
