One-Day Nurses Walkout At Eden Hospital Today

Union action aimed at Sutter Health which will stay open using temporary nurses.


Nurses will hold a one-day walkout at Eden Hospital today, the sixth in a series of similar walkouts over 18 months of rancorous negotiations with Sutter Health over a new contract.

The strike will also affect other Sutter facilities: 

  1. Alta Bates Summit Medical Center facilities in Berkeley and Oakland
  2. San Leandro Hospital
  3. Sutter Delta in Antioch
  4. Sutter Solano in Vallejo 

About 3,200 RNs as well as several hundred respiratory, X-ray and other technicians will be involved according to the National Nurses Union.

As in the prior five such walkouts, Sutter will keep hospitals open with temporary replacements.
