The Mercury News

Nurses who work at Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital are a step closer to a possible strike after voting down what was termed a “last, best and final offer.” An attorney for the union that represents the 2,700 nurses at the hospital says about 90 percent of the nurses voted against accepting the offer. Officials say the offer included a 4 percent raise in the contract’s first year and increased benefits.
