Dignity Health, nurses agree to meet over pension plan dispute
Sacramento Bee

Registered nurses and San Francisco-based Dignity Health are at odds over proposed changes in Dignity’s pension plan, and the two sides plan to talk things over in the near future.

The agreement to meet averted registered nurses’ plans to hold candlelight rallies today at 19 Dignity Health hospitals in California and Nevada.

The California Nurses Association and National Nurses Organizing Committee-Nevada – representing about 12,000 Dignity RNs – said the rallies were organized to protest what they called a threatened rollback in retirement benefits.
