With unity breaks, unit petitions, community banners and meeting with Governor Jay Inslee and preparing for our strike vote, our message is clear: Respect Us, Protect Us, Pay Us.
UW Medicine can do better, UW Medicine must do better. We’ve been clear for weeks – we’re voting this month – either to ratify a contract that moves us forward or do authorize a strike. We don’t want to, but we will if we have to. It’s time for UW Medicine to stop playing games and bring the proposals we need.
Our next bargaining session is scheduled for October 25. We have been clear with UW Administration – we want to meet, we want to bargain and we need a good contract.
