Memorial Hospital nurses out on strike
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Nurses at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, who are currently in negotiations over a new union contract, went on strike Thursday morning, their fourth walkout since labor talks began last fall.

The strike takes place going into what is usually the second-busiest holiday weekend for the hospital’s trauma center.

Beginning at 5 a.m., nurses with the Santa Rosa-based Staff Nurses Association picketed in front of Memorial Hospital on Montgomery Drive, carrying familiar blue signs decrying unsafe staffing at the hospital.
