Nurses And Service Workers At Providence Sacred Heart Hold Strike Vote This Week


Nurses and service workers at Provi­dence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane are holding a vote this week on whether to strike.

Negoti­a­tions are contin­uing, but Darryl Johnson, the griev­ance officer for the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion, says the union objects to cuts the hospital proposes to make to the nurses’ extended illness benefits, or EIT, bank, which accrue over the years.
