Nurses plan strike at Mills-Peninsula hospital 12/22/11
What bad kitty?
Of course you were not planning to be a patient on that Thursday anyhow, right?
Contra Costa Times/Inside Bay Area, 12/9/11. "A union representing
registered nurses announced Friday it will wage a one-day strike on Dec.
22 against at least six Sutter hospitals in the Bay Area.The
California Nurses Association/ National Nurses United said little
progress has been made in its negotiations for a new contract since it
held a similar one-day walkout in September.
That strike generated
heated debate when several of the hospitals locked out striking nurses
for five days and a patient at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in
Oakland died after a replacement nurse reportedly made a medical error. Hospitals
affected by the Dec. 22 walkout will include Alta Bates Summit Medical
Center in Oakland and Berkeley, Sutter Delta in Antioch,Mills-Peninsula
hospitals in Burlingame and San Mateo, and Sutter Solano in Vallejo,
union leaders said."
