Dear President Diane Sosne, Executive Vice President Jane Hopkins,
Your Kalispell Education Association Brothers and Sisters stand with you in your bargaining with Kalispell Regional Healthcare. We are here to support and encourage you in any way possible. We are proud of you for uniting in a common cause. Change is never easy and your employer is fighting this change hard. Stay the course. Your strength is admirable.
This is a letter of support. If there is anything else we can do to help you in your fight, know that you have our full support. We have voted to use funds to support your bargaining team by bringing dinner, or snacks at your bargaining session on April 27, or whatever would help them and let them feel they are not alone. Please reach out if you have any other ideas of ways we can support you. Our teachers have asked and we have encouraged them to put up yard signs and magnets on their vehicles, reach out to their friends and neighbors who are nurses, and to comment on social media in ways that are supportive of nurses and your cause.
We want you to know that; We see you. We hear you. We support you.
Your Union sisters and brothers.
Kalispell Education Association
