Last month we submitted Unfair Labor Practice complaints (ULPs) on behalf of those of us who felt that Tacoma General Manage­ment was inter­fering with our protected union activ­i­ties, as well as trying to spread anti-union sentiment.

We have received notice that Region 19 found merit in the following complaints:

  • Making threat­ening comments about Union members and/​or partic­i­pa­tion in Union activities
  • Making denigrating state­ments about WSNA to employees
  • Taking Coercive actions against members and Union activity.

We are very excited about this incred­ible win! We have additional ULPs that are still being inves­ti­gated and we are confi­dent that we will prevail there as well.

Thank you to all the nurses who spoke up and told their stories. We under­stand how intim­i­dating it can be in an environ­ment that fosters these kinds of senti­ments. Remember, your voice is your power and we need to hear from you to make changes in your workplace. Together, we will bring meaningful change to all of our nurses.
