Nurses, Stanford at odds over contract, could lead to strike
The Mercury News

Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital are bracing for a potential strike by their nurses. In the wake of tense negotiations that opened in January, officials with the hospitals say they’ve given their “last, best and final offer” to the union representing the nurses, who will vote next week on whether to accept it. The hospitals’ current contract with the nursing union CRONA, or Committee for Recognition of Nursing Achievement, expired Wednesday.
