Long Beach nurses threatening to strike
Southern California Public Radio

Registered nurses in Long Beach say they’re ready to walk off the job if they don’t get a new contract soon.

A strike would involve nearly 2,000 registered nurses from Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach. Nurses voted late last week to authorize a strike in advance of this week’s talks between representatives of the California Nurses Association and hospital administrators. The previous contract expired in late September. The two sides have been negotiating since July.
