Nurses and technical and service caregivers at Swedish of Edmonds walk a picket line Wednesday morning, Jan. 29, after going on strike the day before. The caregivers of SEIU Healthcare 1199NW at Swedish Medical Center plan to continue to strike and picket through Jan. 31. They are protesting what they say are unfair labor practices and patient safety issues caused by company management. The strike involves nearly 8,000 employees, including those at Swedish Edmonds on 76th Avenue West.
