UC, union reach deal – strike averted at hospitals
San Francisco Chronicle

A planned, five-day strike this week at University of California hospitals was averted Sunday after school officials and the union representing patient care technical workers reached a tentative agreement.

The proposed four-year contract covers 13,000 workers and could end months of tension between the university system and the union, which represents nursing aides, certified nursing assistants, magnetic resonance imaging technologists and other employees. A ratification vote is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.
