Nurses, Sutter Health at odds after day strike
Wednesday - 6/13/2012, 11:27pm EDT
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California union officials and representatives of a group of Sutter Health hospitals remain at odds over a number of issues after nurses went on a one-day strike Wednesday.
A spokesman for the California Nurses Association says a majority of the 4,500 nurses who work at 10 Sutter Health hospitals in the San Francisco Bay area and Petaluma Valley Hospital walked off the job to protest stalled contract talks.
But a Sutter spokeswoman says what she described as a "large number" of nurses crossed picket lines and reported to work. Neither side was able to provide the exact number of nurses who refused to show up for work Wednesday.
Sutter says replacement nurses have been hired to take the place of the striking nurses, who won't be allowed to return to work until Monday.
