SEATTLE — Nurses and caregivers from Swedish hospitals say they will deliver a 10-day strike notice Friday to the health care provider after a breakdown in negotiations, according to a union news release.
The anticipated strike would last three days, from Jan. 28 to Jan. 30.
More than 8,000 employees from each hospital campus, including Edmonds, could take part. Union members are expected to make the announcement Friday at a Seattle news conference, according to SEIU Healthcare 1199NW.
After months of contract talks between the union and health-care provider, union negotiators say the parties are still too far apart.
