TACOMA (Aug. 23, 2022) — Fresenius Kidney Care workers in Tacoma, Gig Harbor and Puyallup have been trying to negotiate fair contracts against a wealthy international corporation that is employing union busting tactics.

Nurses represented by the Washington State Nurses Association and techs represented by UFCW 3000 have had five half-day negotiation sessions since their contracts expired June 21. Management refuses to hold all-day negotiations and is currently offering measly raises that don’t even come close to covering inflation.
