Local 5 has a committee that reviews WSRs. Members on this committee follow-up on the Workload Staffing Reports (WSRs) filed by nurses employed by St. Boniface Hospital. WSR statistics are brought forward to the Nursing Advisory Committee.
Optimally there are six representatives on this committee. Three members are elected at each Local 5 annual general meeting and serve a 2 year term of office (overlapping terms for continuity).
It is important that nurses file WSRs in order to resolve workload issues at SBH. The WSR is a jointly shared management tool. These forms provide us with statistics and assist in providing communication at NAC regarding workload issues at SBH.
