Judge Rejects Dismissal of Nursing Strike Lawsuit
On Friday, a federal judge rejected the California Nurses Association's motion to dismiss a lawsuit that Kaiser Permanente filed against the union. The suit alleged that CNA violated a no-strike clause in its contract when it participated in a one-day strike in September 2011. The judge said the contract is "ambiguous" but declined to find that Kaiser lacks the right to file the suit.
