Nurses at 21 Kaiser Hospitals plan to hold a two-day strike November 21 and 22 and includes Kaiser Permanente medical centers in Sacramento, south Sacramento, Roseville, Modesto, Manteca, and Fresno. The nurses plan to continue voicing their concerns about chronic short-staffing and workplace health and safety. The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United, the labor union that represents 21,000 registered nurses and nurse practitioners at the 21 medical centers, said the nurses’ strike is to protest Kaiser Permanente’s refusal to address their concerns “with little to no movement on key issues.” Kaiser Permanente officials said they have been making steady progress in labor negotiations, reaching important agreements in bargaining on safety, diversity, and other issues. They also said they have contingency plans in place to ensure patients receive the care they need if the union holds its planned strike.
