Our UW Medicine- Harborview Medical Center bargaining team, nurses and healthcare care workers united in SEIU Healthcare 1199NW, reached a contract agreement with management last week that will bring significant improvements to our Harborview community.
Our unified strength in advocating for our patients and families allowed us to enhance patient safety and improve industry standards. The new contract includes:
By standing together not only did we prevent any takeaways, but we took critical steps forward for quality healthcare and an improved work environment.
We thank our community supporters for your commitment to nurses, healthcare workers, our patients, and our community during this bargaining effort. Standing in solidarity with us as we worked to show how seriously we take patient care and Harborview’s mission was vital for our morale during a challenging time.
Together we showed what we can achieve for our community when we stand together as healthcare advocates. We look forward to continuing working together!
