WSR/NAC: Just the Facts

SUN is committed to helping Locals and members advance their professional practice, workload, and staffing concerns using the strength of our SUN/SAHO collective agreement articles and processes. The professional practice articles (Articles 56-58) support member’s obligations to provide safe, competent, high-quality, and appropriate care to meet the needs of their patients, clients, and/or residents.

Members must be knowledgeable, engaged, and involved to solve their professional practice concerns at the Local level. This can mean completing Work Situation Reports (WSRs) and participating in the Joint Nursing Advisory Committee (NAC) processes.  


What Members Need to Do:
