Nurses union threatens 7-day East Bay strike against Sutter hospitals
San Francisco Business Times

The California Nurses Association is planning a seven-day strike at several Sutter Health hospitals in the East Bay, in an attempt to put pressure on the system to end a long impasse. The Oakland-based CNA, which is affiliated with National Nurses United, said the strike is slated to begin May 17 and end early on May 24. Affected hospitals could include Alta Bates Summit Medical Center campuses in Berkeley and Oakland, Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, Antioch’s Sutter Delta Medical Center, and San Leandro Hospital — a facility that Sutter wants to close or sell.
