4,500 nurses walk off job at 7 Bay Area Sutter Health hospitals
Sacramento Bee

About 4,500 nurses at seven Bay Area Sutter Health hospitals walked off the job Tuesday in an effort to force hospital officials to back off proposals such as changing sick leave policies and requiring nurses to pay more of their health care premiums. It was the third one-day strike by Sutter nurses in the Bay Area over the past year, and one in a series of recent labor actions by the California Nurses Association, the union that represents the nurses.
