San Francisco Chronicle

Nurses at Oakland’s Children’s Hospital are set to go on strike over a contract dispute.

The California Nurses Association says about 700 nurses will walk off the job for five days starting Thursday.

The hospital has hired about 125 replacement nurses and will rely on non-union nurses to reach required staffing levels. Hospital officials say emergency department services will not be affected.
