Nurses at 9 Bay Area Hospitals Plan One-Day Strike

OAKLAND, Calif. — Thousands of nurses at nine San Francisco Bay area hospitals are planning a one-day strike over contract talks with Sutter Health.

Union officials say 4,000 nurses will walk off the job at 7 a.m. Thursday unless a deal is reached with Sutter. The strike would affect Alta Bates, Summit and Herrick campuses in Berkeley and Oakland, Eden Medical Center facilities in Castro Valley and San Leandro, Sutter Delta in Antioch, Sutter Solano in Vallejo and the Mills-Peninsula hospital campuses in Burlingame and San Mateo.

An additional 2,000 nurses at a separate hospital system in Long Beach would also walk off the job.

A Sutter Health spokesman has said the hospital chain plans to bring in replacement nurses.

Sutter Health and the California Nurses Association are at odds over proposed changes in sick days and union representation.
