More than 900 workers at Skagit Regional Health voted overwhelmingly to ratify their first contract as UFCW Local 21 members. The contract includes wage increases based on a worker’s length of service, respect at work, and a voice on the job. Members also secured affordable health benefits with the three-year contract. The historic first contract covers one of the largest health care groups in Washington state. The contract covers registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, office and clerical workers, service and maintenance workers, and clerical workers.
