Sutter nurses to begin strike at East Bay hospitals
Sacramento Business Journal

Registered nurses will begin a seven-day strike at five East Bay Sutter hospitals Friday to protest what they say is the company’s continuing demand for cuts in patient care protections and health care coverage, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses United announced Thursday. The walkout will affect more than 3,100 registered nurses and respiratory, X-ray and other technicians at Alta Bates Summit hospitals in Berkeley and Oakland, Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley and Sutter Delta in Antioch.
