Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Nurses will end their two-day strike at Memorial Hospital at 5 a.m. Thursday, but vowed to continue picketing outside the Santa Rosa hospital until they are allowed to return to their jobs over the weekend.

About 150 temporary nurses hired to keep the hospital operating during the strike will continue to work until Saturday morning, when their four-day contract expires, said Debra Miller, vice president of human resources for St. Joseph Health System in Sonoma County, which operates Memorial.
