The California Nurses Association’s 11,700 RNs at five University of California medical centers and a host of student health centers have reached a tentative settlement, but the AFSCME 3299 is still set to strike Wednesday over alleged unfair labor practices.

The UC system, meanwhile, is attempting to get a court injunction to limit the magnitude of the Nov. 20 strike. At UC’s request, the California labor board — formally known as the Public Employment Relations Board — is seeking a temporary restraining order in Sacramento Superior Court on Tuesday to limit the number of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees union members who can partake in the one-day action, UC officials said Nov. 18.
