Strike Authorization Vote October 29 and 30 #

Your bargaining team recommends a “yes” vote #

We have been bargaining for over a year. We have rallied and picketed and negoti­ated hard. Unfor­tu­nately, Provi­dence Kadlec manage­ment remain insis­tent that they be able to cut your PTO, stealing back your earned benefits, even as Provi­dence earned $1 billion in profits so far this year. Provi­dence corpo­rate has ignored our concerns over fair treat­ment and safe staffing.

We also have seen manage­ment commit multiple Unfair Labor Practices, illegal actions aimed at dimin­ishing our power, including inter­fering with nurses right to concerted activity and failing to bargain in good faith.

Our strike assess­ment and strike prepa­ra­tions have demon­strated that we are strong, and we are prepared to continue our fight for a fair contract.

Your bargaining team has worked as hard as we can at the bargaining table to push back on the take-aways manage­ment has proposed. Now we need every single nurse to stand behind us by voting YES. Yes, you are willing to strike if you have to. Yes, you will stand on the picket line. Yes, you will send the most powerful message to manage­ment that we are not backing down.
