Fighting the Attendance Policy

Our last day of arbitration for the Attendance policy was yesterday, November 2nd.

The Arbitrator now will review all the information from both sides and determine a legal and binding decision. The arbitration process is the best way to fight the policy -through the legal process.

We anticipate a decision just after the new year.
UNAP Conference & the Patient Safety Act  

The UNAP Convention & Conference is a biennial event where Union members from all the locals gather for an informative day on union topics, education, and business of the UNAP. This year it was held at the OmniProvidence on Monday October 30th. 

In the afternoon, Representative Chris Blazejewski, sponsor of the Act, spoke to the audience on its importance in getting the bill passed.
