Nurses at Oakland Hospital Return to Work After Strike
After a three-day strike over stalled contract negotiations, registered nurses at Children's Hospital Oakland returned to work on Friday. The California Nurses Association, which represents 700Â RNs at Children's Hospital, objects to the proposed cost of health benefits for nurses. The hospital has cited the economic environment and rising health care costs as the reason for higher employee health coverage costs. Additional discussions over the contract have not yet been scheduled.
