Nurses Plan Another Strike at Sutter, HCA Hospitals
On Tuesday, the California Nurses Association plans to launch a two-day strike at Sutter Health hospitals in the Bay Area. This will be the seventh strike against Sutter since September 2011. The registered nurses said they are striking over proposed cuts to their health coverage, paid sick leave and education leave, as well as workplace conditions affecting patient care. CNA also plans to hold a one-day walkout at two San Jose hospitals operated by the Hospital Corporation of America.
