On June 28, Swedish and SEIU again met at the bargaining table to respond to a number of proposals focusing on updates to existing language in the contracts. The two parties reached agreements on a number of proposals that updated language and housekeeping in the RN, tech and service contracts. This work will be continued at Thursday’s bargaining session.
Swedish and SEIU discussed extending the contract through July 19, which will give both parties more time to work through the bargaining process toward an outcome that is fair for everyone who relies on Swedish – our patients, employees and community.
Bargaining will resume on Thursday, June 30. Future bargaining sessions are scheduled for July 7 and 19.
