Skagit Regional Health, nurses reach agreement


MOUNT VERNON — Skagit Regional Health has reached an agree­ment on a new contract with its nurses union, after 20 bargaining sessions that spanned about a year.

These were long, diffi­cult negoti­a­tions that raised serious issues about patient safety,” said Ruth Schubert, commu­ni­ca­tions director with the Washington State Nurses Associ­a­tion. We are pleased that the agree­ment we reached includes signif­i­cant wage increases, vastly improved staffing language and additional signif­i­cant improvements.”
