San Francisco Business Times

The California Nurses Association and Alta Bates Summit Medical Center are awaiting a decision by an outside arbitrator on whether the East Bay hospital system can proceed with layoffs and a restructuring of its 1,700-member nursing staff.

Late last month, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Seeborg blocked Alta Bates Summit’s plans to implement those plans on March 2. Alta Bates Summit, part of Sutter Health, has hospital campuses in Berkeley and Oakland.
