Nurses plan protest over Dignity Health pension cuts
Sacramento Business Journal

Angry nurses will hold candlelight rallies Friday to protest what they say is a threat by Dignity Health to roll back monthly pension benefits for retirees by 30 percent in violation of a new contract signed three months ago. Nurses allege hospital execs are making this change — outlined obliquely in a letter sent to nurses last week — despite commitments during contract negotiations earlier this year that the health system would not seek to cut retirement benefits for nurses.
