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.

Are you ready to fight to keep our PTO and safety for our nurses and patients?
