NEW YORK NURSE: December 2010
NYSNA members who are represented for collective bargaining recently received a ballot for the 2010-2011 National Federation of Nurses election that may have had incorrect voting instructions. Because of the error, the election is being re-run and all voting members will receive new ballots.
Here are the new instructions for the correct voting procedure:
NYSNA members who are represented for collective bargaining will elect 16 delegates to the National Federation of Nurses (NFN) National Federation Assembly (NFA). The National Federation Assembly, the delegate body of the NFN, is elected by each state and is proportionate to the size of the state. NYSNA’s Delegates will be elected by geographic zone. Each of the 11 zones will have one NFA delegate and Zones 1, 7, 8, 9 and 10 will elect an additional delegate each for a total of 16 NFA delegates.
