VOTE NOW: Stewards’ Council Nominees

We are excited to announce that we have 9 nominees for the St. Vincent Stewards’ Council. ONA Stewards at St. Vincent are the first line of response to nurses on questions, disputes and issues of concern. We currently have 23 active stewards representing 13 nursing units. Stewards are members in good standing who have agreed to sign and abide by the steward pledge, have completed basic training, and are elected by nurses in their unit. For a complete list of responsibilities and the process for becoming a steward, click here

Stewards are elected in a democratic process by nurses in their unit to ensure they have the support of nurses on their unit, to create greater transparency and accountability in our leadership structures, and to improve communication to nurses on their units about ONA activities.

Nurses on the December 2011 ballot are:

  • 5E: John Schmelzer
  • 6W: Steve Moyer
  • 7E: Sally Lovett
  • 7W: Cathy Giesa
  • 7W: Ann Ferris
  • MPU: Joan Alfano
  • Labor and Delivery: Dani Tanzella
  • Post partum (cross trained L & D), Linnea Smith
  • Outpatient Eye: Robin Firth, Resource

Rules for voting:

Unlike most ONA elections, nurses are not required to be ONA members to vote for a Steward.

All candidates who receive a vote from the majority (50% +1) of eligible ballots case will be elected as Stewards for their department. There is no limit on the number of Stewards who may be elected for any department.

Only nurses currently employed in that unit may vote for the unit steward nominee. Nurses may vote for as many candidates on the ballot as they wish. Write in candidates are not permitted.

Voting is now open and will close on December 21, 2011. Your vote will be confidential! To vote, you must enter your name, unit and e-mail address simply to verify the authenticity of the vote.
