Due to protracted negoti­a­tions and the employer’s unwill­ing­ness to recog­nize the hard work of RNs here at Evergreen and treat them with the respect they deserve, your WSNA Bargaining Team is taking action.

Your bargaining team of regis­tered nurses will be making contact with atten­dees at the April 27 Gala at Marymoor Park to inform them of the employer’s unwill­ing­ness to offer fair wages and a safe working environ­ment for regis­tered nurses. Some 25 RNs from around the hospital will be convening at Marymoor Park and leaflet­ting arriving atten­dees, along with answering any questions they may have regarding our diffi­cult negoti­a­tions. Physi­cians and donors should know how Admin­is­tra­tion is treating their RNs.

Our teams are set to meet on Friday, April 26, for our first session with a mediator but mountains will have to move in order to stave off this action.

We do not need the involve­ment of the entire member­ship at this time but stay tuned for how you can contribute to attaining a fair contract for all RNs working at Evergreen Medical Center.

In Solidarity,
