The WSNA Cabinet on Economic and General Welfare invites you to join your fellow union nurses across Washington state for WSNA Nurses Unite! Connect. Create. Collaborate. This new, free event will be held virtually on Monday, Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Because COVID-19 has had a profound impact on how nurses live, advocate and care for their patients, the Cabinet created WSNA Nurses Unite! to provide more opportunities for nurses to:
- Collaborate and strategize with other WSNA union members throughout the state.
- Learn from state and national labor leaders about the future of the labor movement amid health, racial and economic crises.
- Reenergize after a challenging year.
WSNA Nurses Unite! Presenters #
Randi Weingarten, American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president, will discuss labor’s leading role at the national level to keep nurses and patients safe during the coronavirus pandemic, lead in the fight for racial justice and supporting working Americans in tough economic times.
Larry Brown, Washington State Labor Council president, will share how unions in Washington are working together to protect workers and support communities through the coronavirus pandemic and economic hardship.
April Sims, Washington State Labor Council secretary treasurer, will discuss the labor movement’s responsibility to tackle racism and WSLC’s work in response to the past year’s reckoning with racism as a public health crisis.
The event will also include an awards ceremony to celebrate the successes and outstanding work of WSNA union members.
