During the three-day strike, case managers, therapists, nurses, and mental health professionals are calling for new leadership at Behavioral Health Resources.

The group says they've lost more than $400,000 of income under their last contract to help the struggling treatment facility's finances. But after two years, the company is still struggling.

"We are working under a system where we only get reimbursed when we see our clients," case manager and therapist Ramona Marshall said.

On Wednesday, management rejected SEIU Healthcare 1199NW - a contract with a $300,000 loss proposed by the union.

The workers are now striking at eight locations as part of the pay dispute.

"When we're feeling pressure and labor under a shame/blame atmosphere it's hard to give our best work with our clients," Marshall said.

BHR serves Thurston, Mason, and Grays Harbor counties, and employs roughly 300 people to serve their 10,000 patients.
