Winning the contract our patients need and nurses deserve requires fighting against Providence Kadlec's corporate greed. To prepare for this fight, we are recruiting Rapid Response Organizers (RROs) for every unit and on every shift.
Who are Rapid Response Organizers? Unit nurses who agree to communicate with their unit colleagues to make sure nurses are informed and engaged in the contract campaign. RROs will be talking to every nurse at Kadlec about our campaign to win a fair contract and assess strike readiness to protect patients, ensure safe staffing, enhance working conditions and secure the wages and benefits nurses deserve. RROs will also have accurate information about our campaign and be able to respond to any rumors from management intended to intimidate people during the contract negotiations process.
To be effective, our RROs will need training. To that end, we have scheduled two training sessions:
8-10 p.m. on Monday, September 16
8-10 a.m. on Tuesday, September 17
Both sessions will be held at:
Executive Board Room
Hampton Inn, Richland/Tri-Cities
486 Bradley Blvd, Richland, WA 99352
We ask that anyone who has signed up as an RRO or is interested in becoming an RRO attend one of these sessions. Please RSVP using the link below.
