Kadlec and nurses union reach contract agreement

We are pleased to share that the local unit of the Washington State Nurses Association (WSNA) has approved a new contract. The agreement covers the period from ratification through Oct. 31, 2022.

Team members from Kadlec and the local unit of WSNA came together on the new agreement following 16 negotiating sessions over the past 14 months. Kirk Harper, RN, Kadlec chief nursing officer and chief operating officer, singled out the efforts of negotiating team members from both teams. “We methodically worked through all of the proposals and were able to come together on a fair and equitable contract. I want to acknowledge the work of members from both teams for their commitment to getting to where we are today.”

Harper also reiterated gratitude to members of the community for their patience during this time. “We look forward to continuing to work alongside all of our Kadlec caregivers in carrying out our mission of providing safe, compassionate care," said Harper.
