The nurses of PeaceHealth St. Joseph in Bellingham are having an informational picket and need our help!

PeaceHealth St. Joseph’s nurses have already completed 12 sessions of negotiations for their contract and quite frankly are feeling disrespected by management with the inadequate compensation proposals and apparent lack of appreciation for the work done by all the nurses through this pandemic.

Our nurse siblings have requested our help by attending and helping them with their informational picket. As you may recall, they were a visible presence at Skagit’s own informational picket years ago on the courthouse steps! Let’s show them how we appreciate them and stand in unity with them in their struggle for a fair contract and appropriate recognition from their management!


Date: May 3, 2022
Times: 0630-0900 and 1300-1600
Location: Ellis and Squalicum

We issued notice to the Hospital that the bargaining unit will hold an informational picket. Invite your family, friends, and acquaintances, and bring your pets!

You can read all the updates to catch up on what’s happened so far at this link for the St. Joseph local unit web page: https://www.wsna.org/union/st-joseph-hospital

Thank you to all who will stand with the St. Joe’s nurses! I will see you there!
