San Francisco Chronicle

Registered nurses reached tentative agreements Friday at four East Bay hospitals operated by Sutter Health, resolving long-standing labor issues that involved nine strikes over two years.

The nurses, represented by the California Nurses Association, settled contracts at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley and Oakland, Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, Sutter Solano in Vallejo and Sutter Delta in Antioch.

The dispute centered on wages, benefits and patient care issues.
