San Francisco Chronicle

A two-day strike held by workers at University of California hospitals over staffing and pension is coming to an end. Union officials say the strike formally ends at 4 a.m. Thursday, after thousands of hospital pharmacists, nursing assistants, operating room assistants and other health care workers observed the 48-hour walkout. The green-shirted picketers marched outside medical centers, prompting the postponement of dozens of surgeries.
