These Washington nurses want their hospital to be more like Oregon

The 1,465 nurses at Southwest, who are represented by the Washington State Nurses Association, have been negotiating a new contract since January. Unimpressed with management’s response after 13 bargaining sessions, they decided to hold an informational picket. (A picket differs from a strike in that the workers do not withhold their labor: If Southwest’s nurses were scheduled to work Thursday, they did.)
