Kadlec nurses vote to authorize strike


RICHLAND, Wash. — Kadlec nurses have voted to poten­tially go on strike, and the matter will now go up to the union’s cabinet where an official decision will be made.

More than 900 nurses spent all day Tuesday and Wednesday casting votes on whether or not to strike. Polls closed at 10 p.m. and were counted immedi­ately after.

The decision comes after the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion and Kadlec have been negoti­ating for a new contract for over a year now.
