California Small Business Association Condemns California Nurses Association's Decision to Call Prolonged Strike at Hospitals Throughout Northern California
Date:3/11/2008

State's Small Business Owners Will Pay Higher Healthcare Costs Because of

Strikes and Union's Unrealistic Contract Demands

SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- the California Nurses Association announced their intention to hold prolonged strikes at hospitals throughout Northern California beginning March 21.

Multiply that by nine hospitals over as many as ten-days, and it's clear that the CNA's strike will cost these hospitals -- and ultimately consumers -- tens of millions of dollars.
