12. Oktober 2021 Allgemein

We would also like to thank everyone who participated in the negotiation survey! We are working on data analysis and we are curious to see what members want to see in their contract. This data is used by the bargaining team to develop our proposals and prioritize the campaign. Our bargaining committee met with Bartell Drugs management on Friday, December 11 to negotiate. In the face of COVID-19 outbreaks across the country, we have talked about it: we will participate in meetings of Sno-Isle and the King County Community Labor Council to discuss with unions, communities and political groups. These meetings are organized by Zoom so that you can participate from home. In addition, we will address religious organizations that are allied UFCW 21. If you are interested in participating, please contact the union`s negotiator, Evelyn Orantes-Fogel: eorantesfogel@ufcw21.org. Even if you have other ideas or connections to pro-worker groups, please contact Evelyn or the bargaining team. Our next meeting will be on January 4. We will send an update after our session. Their negotiating team met with management on Monday, December 14, to continue negotiations.

Today we have reached several agreements on language issues and we have begun to look at salaries. PCC finally responded to our request for trading dates. We have scheduled our first appointments with PCC: We cordially invite you to the next multiCare Campaign Kick-Off Event on Tuesday, January 12th. Negotiations are only a few weeks away and we would like to share with you the results of the negotiation inquiry, introduce your negotiating team and prepare everyone for what awaits you during this process. We will also discuss what YOU can do to help the team win a fair contract! We will have our next contract action meeting on December 15 at 8 p.m., where we will discuss further negotiations. We will also launch a petition on financial transparency in Providence Centralia, St. Peter`s and Everett to hold Providence to account. We will also have a banner action over the next two months to stand in solidarity with other hospitals during the negotiations.

We will begin negotiations on our union contract on January 6. As part of our negotiation process, we will ask for dedicated worker seats on the board of directors. As the first day of negotiations approaches, one of the best things you can do to prepare for negotiations is to complete your trading survey. The information gathered in the surveys helps us identify and prioritize the themes that are most important to members, which will guide the proposal process. We also lead the nominations of the bargaining team through the poll, so don`t forget to name a colleague who you know represents you at the table and fights passionately for a fair treaty! Questions or concerns? Ask your bargaining team or contact your union representative Nicholas Hefling: Office Line 206-436-6564, Call/Text Mobile 360-951-5801, email nhefling@ufcw21.org This week we confirmed with MultiCare that January 27 will be our first day of bargaining, followed by February 1, 8, 10, 16, 22 and 26. On December 7, we met with Providence and we expected them to have thoughtful counter-proposals. Instead, they responded with the current contractual language and called us „unprepared.“ We were more than prepared and we take the negotiation seriously. After all, it is our union contract that affects our jobs, livelihoods and families.

Our fight continues to increase our PTO provisions to take into account public holidays. Share your story about the impact of current PTOs on you. Your stories make a difference at the negotiating table! The reason we filed as a separate unit is that the hospital would argue that we had to organize all the MAs at Seattle Children`s and not just Urgent Care MAs….
