Los Angeles Times

Thousands of registered nurses across California will strike for one day this week over myriad issues they say include predatory cuts that affect patient care, unsuccessful contract negotiations and rising healthcare premium costs.

The strikes will take place Thursday and will involve 2,000 nurses from Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Miller Children’s Hospital, and 4,000 nurses from eight Bay Area hospitals owned by Sutter Health, according to the California Nurses Assn. and National Nurses United.
