Hospitals, nurses to restart talks
The Stanford Daily

Contract negotiations between the nurses and administrators at Stanford Hospital & Clinics (SH&C) and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH) took a turn for the worse last month when the nurses voted to authorize a strike. A federal mediator has since requested that both parties return to the bargaining table this Thursday. The vote to authorize a strike marks an escalation in tensions after more than a year of negotiations between the Committee for Recognition of Nursing Achievement (CRONA) and the Stanford hospitals. CRONA represents 2,700 nurses at both hospitals.
