Swedish Hospital Workers’ Strike

January 29, 2020 - 10:24 am

About 7,800 workers among seven regional Swedish Hospital locations went on strike beginning Tuesday morning at 7 am.   In preparation for the walk out, hospital management had cancelled elective surgeries, closed emergency department services in Redmond and Ballard and stopped labor and deliveries service at their Ballard location.  Strikers announced their return to work for 7:30 am on Friday, February 1st.  KBCS’s Yuko Kodama was at Swedish Hospital at Cherry Hill to interview some of the workers who walked out on Tuesday morning.
