Kadlec nurses still on the job after authorizing strike


RICHLAND, Wash. — Kadlec nurses voted on and approved a poten­tial strike after more than a year of contract negotiations.

But they told Action News a strike vote doesn’t signal immediate change.

Negotia­tors say striking is still a ways off, though the vote makes it very clear that nurses aren’t backing down

Regis­tered nurse Meri Bukovinsky has worked with Kadlec for six years and is on the union’s negoti­a­tion team.

It’s not the Kadlec I origi­nally started working for,” she says. We’re fighting to have a fair contract to keep exactly what we have.”
