Providence to Oregon AG: Deny nurses’ request to investigate

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Days after the Oregon Nurses Association wrote a letter to Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum asking her to investigate Providence, the hospital responded with a letter of their own on Tuesday.

A five-day strike led by nearly 1,800 healthcare workers at three Providence facilities ended on Friday evening, but ONA is still asking Providence for better working conditions. In their letter to Rosenbaum, they ask her to investigate Providence’s hiring of new staff members during the strike.
