CNA/NNOC Wins Key Legal Decision Protecting Right of Public Employees to Strike
Date:4/22/2008

CNA/NNOC represents 10,000 UC registered nurses in five major medical centers as well as student health facilities across California.

"This is a critical affirmation of the right of public employees to strike if needed to defend their members and the public interest at a time when the University on behalf of other employers hoped to bar public workers from their constitutional right of free speech and assembly," Jenkins said. Notably, the University was represented in the case by one of the nation's most notorious anti-union law firms, Littler Mendelson.
