The nurses at PeaceHealth St. Joseph's Hospital have been in contract negotiations for five months. They are being offered a contract of take-aways. The nurses wish to see staffing based on patient needs, not raw numbers. They want to stay at home when sick, instead of sharing their sickness with their vulnerable patients. They want to care for sick family members. They want affordable healthcare. They are loath to take their problems before the public. The well-attended informational picket they staged on March 26 was a call to the community to please show your support for the nurses at PeaceHealth St.Joseph's Hospital and demand that they receive the contract offer they deserve.
