San Francisco Chronicle

The California Nurses Association has won Round 1 in a legal battle over whether and when Alta Bates Summit Medical Center can implement layoffs and a scheduled March 2 job restructuring initiative at its hospital campuses in Berkeley and Oakland. A U.S. district court judge blocked Alta Bates Summit’s plans to implement some of the changes over last weekend, imposing a temporary restraining order Feb. 28 on the Sutter Health affiliate.
