‘Break buddy’ time a major point in contract talks for Tacoma General nurses


Nurses at Tacoma General Hospital are asking their employer to give them a break.

That’s the message their union, the Washington State Nurses Association, sent to MultiCare Health Systems during an informational picket and rally Monday.

About 100 nurses and supporters took part in the gathering outside Tacoma General’s main building on MLK Jr. Way in Tacoma.

On Tuesday, the union returned to the bargaining table with MultiCare as the two parties resumed negotiating a new labor contract.
