Kaiser Permanente and the California Nurses Association have reached tentative agreement on a three-year contract for 17,000 registered nurses at 61 facilities throughout Northern and Central California. The nurses union announced the pact Tuesday but provided little detail. In a statement, the union said the pact includes “more than 20 important professional and economic enhancements, and significantly, no reductions in patient care protections or economic or professional practice standards.”
