Support Providence workers at candlelight vigils Wednesday

Vigils for patient safety planned across the state from 5 to 6 p.m.


With a strike looming, the three unions representing approximately 13,000 healthcare workers at Providence hospitals across Washington state are finally reporting progress at the bargaining table. As the months-long campaign by SEIU Healthcare 1199NW, UFCW 21 and the Washington State Nurses Association to put patients before profits continues, now is the time to show hospital administrators that the community is solidly behind these hardworking nurses and caregivers.
