We just experienced the hardest year of our careers, but through it all we did everything we could to provide the best quality care to our patients, even while taking furloughs, in conditions of inadequate PPE, and short staffing.
UW Medicine had a choice. They chose not to uphold their end of our partnership. We cannot recommend to our coworkers what management is offering.
On our day off or on a break on Wednesday, August 4, we will picket outside of Harborview, UWMC-Northwest and Clinics to call on UW Medicine to put patients before profits and value our work.
