Kaiser Nurses End Strike Over Contract At Its L.A. Medical Center
Nurses at Kaiser Permanente's Los Angeles Medical Center will go back to work Tuesday after a weeklong strike aimed at securing a contract with higher staffing levels and better pay. Negotiations began in September and the last session was on March 10, said Patti Clausen, chief nurse executive at Los Angeles Medical Center. She said there is not a set date for bargaining, but that Kaiser is "open to bargain any time they ask us." The union represents about 75% of the nurses at the Kaiser hospital.(Masunaga, 3/21)
