Solidarity With Nurses and Other Health Care Workers in Antigo, WI! – Join June 27, 2022 Informational Picket and Send Letter

Our brothers and sisters of the Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals (WFNHP), AFT union have been on the front lines caring for our loved ones throughout the increased risks and pressures of the pandemic. WFNHP union members at Aspirus Langlade Hospital in Antigo have been in contract negotiations for over half a year and have been working without a contract for the last several months.

Nurses need your support as they ramp up the fight for a fair contract.

Support WFNHP Members at Aspirus Langlade Hospital in their fight for a fair contract:

  • Join nurses, health professionals, and community members for a rally and informational picket in Antigo on Monday, June 27. Gather at 3:00 p.m. Picket begins at 3:30 p.m. Rally will start at 4:00 p.m. RSVP here.
  • SEND AND SHARE this email to Aspirus CEO Matt Heywood urging him to give WFNHP members at Aspirus Langlade Hospital a fair wage increase and improve staffing. This is the best way health care professionals can continue to provide top-notch, quality care.

Aspirus has received over $150 million dollars in federal relief money while frontline nurses and health care workers remain in a staffing crisis. In 2020, the CEO of Aspirus, Matt Heywood, received a 16.9% wage increase or almost $200,000 added to his multi-million dollar yearly pay. Meanwhile, Aspirus is offering frontline nurses and health care workers a meager 2% raise for this year and next year.

We believe workers deserve more. We join together as one labor movement to fight for fair wages, safe working conditions, and to create a better environment for workers and patients alike at Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

A fair contract keeps nurses at the bedside where patients need them. Join the rally and picket in Antigo on Monday, June 27 to stand with WFNHP nurses and health care professions. Send a letter to Aspirus CEO Heywood today.

Together, we are fighting to improve workplaces and communities across Wisconsin by ensuring workers have a fair say in their workplace. That’s the power of a union.

In Solidarity,

Stephanie Bloomingdale, President
