The Washington State Nurses Association, which represents 2,400 registered nurses at UW’s Montlake and Northwest hospitals, is also demanding a voice in the process.

“Our registered nurses at UW Medical Center have been hard at work, 24/7 during this COVID crisis putting their own lives on the line and working to take care of our patients,” said Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives Anne Tan Piazza, of the WSDA. “We as the union representing RNs have not received officials notification from UW with regard to furlough and potential impact for our members. We are demanding to bargain any impact of the program on our members.”
