We are committed to take action for a fair contract.

We will strike if we have to!

Through more than a year of bargaining with Kadlec Medical Center, we have fought for our patients and working conditions that will allow us to provide the best care. We stand united in our fight for a fair contract that includes safe staff ing to protect our patients and benefits, including PTO that nurses have earned and deserve.
