San Francisco Business Times

In response to yet-another threatened strike by the California Nurses Association, this time against Sutter Health’s East Bay hospitals, the system has struck back. The Oakland-based nurses’ union is planning a seven-day walkout from May 17 to early on May 24 over pay, benefit and patient care issues. Sutter East Bay hospitals in the firing line include Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, with campuses in Berkeley and Oakland, Castro Valley’s Eden Medical Center, San Leandro Hospital, and Antioch’s Sutter Delta Medical Center.
