UNITY STATEMENT: Union coalition continues push for agreements at all Providence hospitals

Unity of Unions Leads to Tenta­tive Agree­ment for WSNA – Coali­tion Continues Push for Agree­ments at All Provi­dence Hospitals

This morning the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion (WSNA) announced the reaching of a Tenta­tive Agree­ment in contract negoti­a­tions with Provi­dence at Sacred Heart in Spokane. Over 13,000 nurses and health care workers of our three unions have been in contract negoti­a­tions with Provi­dence for months to protect patient care and safety. SEIU Health­care 1199 NW, UFCW 21 and WSNA stand united for patient care and safety, and our unity has made us strong. This was the key to reaching the Tenta­tive Agree­ment at Sacred Heart with WSNA. Now we will continue our hard work and unity to ensure that every worker at Provi­dence gets a fair contract that helps protect patient care and safety and improves the working condi­tions at all these Provi­dence hospi­tals across Washington.
