TUKWILA, Wash. – Employees who walked out of Cascade Behavioral Health more than three months ago are back.
Healthcare workers who walked out on a safety strike in August say they have reached a tentative agreement with the facility.
The original issue stems from Aug. 1, when health care workers say they couldn’t handle a patient in crisis and called Tukwila police, but were told the new reform laws kept them from responding.
The Tukwila facility reached a three-year agreement with management to satisfy group demands. It reportedly addresses core safety demands, which included dedicated security staff.
