Long Beach Nurses May Walk
NBC Los Angeles

Negotiations are set to resume on Tuesday between union nurses and hospital officials at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.

Members of the California Nurses Assn. have vowed to strike if the hospital doesn’t pull back on a demand that they pay more for health care. Tension has also grown between the two sides over complaints by the nurses that the hospital does not keep enough nurses working at any given time to meet state requirements for patient care.
