Third group of Providence workers pickets for a new contract

EVERETT — Slow-moving negotiations in a year-long contract dispute between Providence Regional Medical Center and some of its employees prompted some union members to begin picketing the hospital’s sidewalks.

The technicians and professionals employed by Providence are seeking wage increases and to retain sick leave benefits in negotiations that have been ongoing since contracts began to expire in March 2018.

These most recent rounds of negotiations are separate from those for hospice workers at Providence, who’ve been in contract talks for nearly three years, and nurses, who received raises in a contract agreement last year. Both of those unions have also set up pickets.

“The overall intention and hope that the employees have is to come to the bargaining table and have a meaningful discussion about these key topics,” said Maria Goodall, a technician in the imaging department at Providence since 2006.
