Sacramento Bee

After years of negotiations and a threatened walkout, University of California nurses are voting this week to ratify their first multiyear labor agreement with UC in nearly a decade.

The 26-month deal, still tentative pending a vote by the California Nurses Association, includes an average pay hike of 11 percent for all nurses over the next 26 months.

Other contract provisions include defined meal and rest breaks along with limits on the contributions nurses would have to make to their health insurance premiums.
