NEW YORK NURSE: September 2013
“We all face extraordinary challenges daily as we care for patients. Our union is becoming THE powerful voice of NY nurses, recognized by government and hospital CEOs.
“NYSNA is a work in progress. It needs the active input of members to improve our working situations. When nurses support a picket, lobby legislators, sign a petition, confront a bullying manager, or vote, we build our union and our strength.
“It’s only through collective action that we can win legislated staffing ratios and make NYSNA meet our needs and protect our communities.”
— Judy Sheridan-Gonzalez, RN, NYSNA President-Elect
The NY Nurses for Staffing, Security, and Strength (S-3) slate has won election in all offices in the election for NYSNA officers.
This is the fifth time in the last two years that nurses have voted to support our union’s new direction. Members are standing together to make NYSNA one strong, united voice.
Candidates will be seated at the end of the NYSNA Convention, which will be October 16-18 in New York City.
