A union representing 750 registered nurses at Children’s Hospital Oakland has announced it plans to strike for five days beginning next week. The hospital will bring in temporary nurses and remain open during the walkout, which is scheduled to start at 7 a.m. Thursday and end at 7 a.m. May 10.

“It’s unfortunate, but we are resilient, we are preparing, and we will take care of these kids,” said Cynthia Chiarappa, vice president of communications for the hospital.
