Stand with the nurses and caregivers at UW Medicine Valley Medical Center

Listen to our radio ads

The nurses and caregivers of SEIU Healthcare 1199NW have proudly cared for our community during the COVID-19 crisis, often at the risk to their own health. Their work is essential. Their retirement is, too. But at UW Valley Medical Center, hospital profits are down, and Valley management is looking for ways to save money. They want to do it by suspending caregivers’ retirement contributions for months at a time. Suspending retirement contributions to shore up profit margins and dole out millions to highly paid executives will hit people of color the hardest. This is no way to reward caregivers for their extraordinary life-saving work, and it’s no way to recruit and retain the top-quality healthcare workers our community needs.
