Sacred Heart nurses say strike will happen if a fair contract doesn't


SPOKANE, Wash. — Nurses with Provi­dence Sacred Heart say it’s been a long and diffi­cult year of negoti­a­tions and a strike will happen if a fair contract doesn’t. The hospital said they believe what’s been offered is fair, but nurses disagree.

Stevie Lynne Krone said she feels the weight of her fellow Sacred Heart nurses on her shoul­ders. She’s both a nurse and a member of the contract negoti­a­tion team between the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion and Provi­dence Sacred Heart. She said she hoped it wouldn’t come to this point.

We’re not asking for more,” Krone said. We’re asking to maintain our benefits and have adequate staffing and better working conditions.”
