Demand WCHN Respect Hospital Techs & Therapists

The medical technical professionals and therapists at Danbury and New Milford Hospitals believe they are more than bedside caregivers -- they are advocates for the health services our communities depend on. That’s why last fall they united for a voice on the job and are seeking a fair contract to empower them to strengthen and protect patient care.

But the non-profit health network that owns and operates both acute care facilities is disrespecting its own caregivers.

Management with the Western Connecticut Health Network (WCHN) has in nine months failed to reach agreement with the techs and therapists, whose top priority is safety for patients and staff. At the same time, network leaders have allowed millions in bonuses and incentives to be handed out to top executives who don’t provide direct bedside care.

Tell WCHN leadership to put patients before profits by directing management to reach a final settlement that is fair and respects the techs and therapists who are there for us.

We believe that the techs and therapists at Danbury and New Milford Hospitals are more than just caregivers; they are advocates for quality care for the entire community. They are seeking a fair contract that would empower them with a voice in boosting satisfaction, improving outcomes and increasing safety for their patients.

But in nine months of negotiations, management has failed to come to an agreement on final terms with the techs and therapists. At the same time, millions in bonuses and incentives are being be handed over to the network’s top executives.

Our community urges WCHN leadership to put patients before profits and direct management to reach a fair agreement with the hospitals’ techs and therapists who are there for us.
