4,000 Nurses On Strike in San Francisco
Nurses at eight Sutter Health Hospitals in the Bay Area started a 10-day strike on Friday, their third walk-out in six months. The nurses and the hospitals are at loggerheads in negotiations over healthcare, pensions, meal and break periods, and safe lifting policies. The hospitals have brought in replacement nurses from other states. Some articles about the dispute appear here, here, here and here.
