‘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.
