Yakima Picket Notice Delivery

Our hospi­tals are able to serve our commu­nity because nurses and service and technical workers make the commit­ment every day to give our absolute best for the care of our patients. Together, WSNA and SEIU took a stand and demanded that Astria show that same level of commit­ment. A true commit­ment to the care and lives of our patients means having the supplies and staff for us to do our jobs. When the hospital fails us, they are failing our patients and our community.

That is why on Friday, Nov. 9, we marched to admin­is­tra­tion together and deliv­ered the 10-day notice of our intent to conduct an infor­ma­tional picket.

We can’t sit on the sidelines while our employer makes decisions that inter­fere with our ability to provide care, hurts our oppor­tu­ni­ties to attract and retain great staff and disre­spects our commit­ment and years of service to our facility.

We are picketing for dignity, respect, safe staffing and a standard of care our commu­nity needs and deserves. Join us on Nov. 20 on the picket line. Only together can we hold Astria account­able and call on them to prior­i­tize patient care.
