Nurses announce another strike against East Bay hospitals affiliated with Sutter Health
The Mercury News

Hundreds of registered nurses have planned another strike against East Bay hospitals affiliated with Sutter Health — and this time the walkout will last at least seven days. The strike — part of a lengthy battle over wages, benefits and patient care issues — will begin at 7 a.m. on May 17 and end at 7 a.m. on May 24, union leaders said. But it could last beyond that date if the hospitals hire replacement workers on longer contracts and lock out the striking nurses until those contracts end, as has happened in the past.
