5,000 Sutter Nurses Prepare for Second Strike Against Chain
Date:12/12/2007

RNs Demand Safe Patient Care in December 13 and 14 Walkouts at Thirteen

Facilities

OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 5,000 RNs from thirteen Sutter Health facilities throughout Northern California are preparing for their second strike against the healthcare giant on Thursday, Dec. 13 and Friday Dec. 14, citing serious concerns over patient care and patient safety. Sutter has threatened a lockout at the majority of the affected facilities, lengthening the two-day strike into a four- or five-day lockout.

The strike issues for Sutter RNs are:

-- Patient care protections at Sutter hospitals

-- Reductions in health care coverage and retirement security for Sutter

RNs

-- Sutter proposals to eliminate essential patient care services in Bay

Area communities

Picketing begins at all facilities at 7 a.m.; nurses will also stage three major rallies:

WHAT: Bay Area Nurses Rally Against Sutter Health

WHERE: California Pacific Medical Center, 3700 California St., San

Francisco

WHEN: Thursday, Dec. 13, 11:30 a.m.

WHAT: Bay Area Nurses Rally Against Sutter Health

WHERE: Mills Peninsula Health Services, 1501 Trousdale Dr., Burlingame

WHEN: Friday, Dec. 14, 11:30 a.m.

WHAT: San Francisco Nurses Rally to Save St. Luke's Hospital

WHERE: St. Luke's Hospital, Front Entrance, Cesar Chavez St. @ Valencia

St.

WHEN: Friday, Dec. 14, 2:30 p.m.

The RNs first walked out in October and experienced strong community support on the picket line, as they were joined by patients, doctors, elected officials, clergy, community groups, healthcare activists, advocates for seniors and the disabled, and others. In November, RNs voted overwhelmingly to authorize a second strike against Sutter, in the face of a harassment campaign by management targeting nurses for retribution.
