Sutter loses labor decision
Sacramento Bee

Sacramento-based Sutter Health has suffered a setback in the latest round of a long-running collective bargaining dispute about the anticipated fiscal impact of the federal Affordable Care Act.

But significantly, it affects only about 300 registered nurses at Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch.

A federal administrative law judge with the National Labor Relations Board ruled Tuesday that Sutter Health East Bay Region engaged in unfair labor practices with the California Nurses Association representing the Sutter Delta registered nurses.
