Nurses to strike Bay Area hospitals again
San Francisco Chronicle

Registered nurses represented by the California Nurses Association have barely had time to put away their picket signs from the last strike, and they’re preparing to walk off their jobs again over a long-standing contract dispute. Unionized nurses plan to strike Tuesday at a number of Bay Area hospitals operated by Sutter Health, the largest being Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland and Berkeley. This will be the seventh strike against Sutter since September 2011 and the second one this month.
