MultiCare has agreed to halt any further wage deductions pending the outcome of the legal challenge brought by WSNA, UFCW 3000, and SEIU Healthcare 1199NW. That process is expected to take several weeks. Thank you to our members who came forward to provide declarations about problems with the True-Up process and intended deductions.
The case is currently before a federal judge after MultiCare removed the lawsuit from state court to federal court which would delay proceedings. The Unions have objected to that maneuver, which is merely a stalling tactic, and are asking to be sent back to state court.
MultiCare has informed the Unions that it intends to undertake an audit into the accuracy of some employees’ overpayments. It is our understanding that they will audit the overpayment amount of anyone who disputes that their alleged overpayment is correct.
As we continue negotiating with MultiCare, we will get details on how members may access that audit process.
