Thousands of nurses at nearly three dozen hospitals in Northern and Central California are set to go on strike Thursday over benefit cuts and other concessions sought by hospital management.
"Strikes are a last resort, but nurses will only strike if they want to make sure that patients have safe care every day," said Charles Idelson, a spokesman for the association.
The strike at 33 not-for-profit hospitals run by Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health and at the independent Children's Hospital Oakland began at 7 a.m., said Charles Idelson, a spokesman for the California Nurses Association, which organized the strike.
