Hospitals, nurses to restart talks

Contract negotiations between the nurses and administrators at Stanford Hospital & Clinics (SH&C) and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH) took a turn for the worse last month when the nurses voted to authorize a strike. A federal mediator has since requested that both parties return to the bargaining table this Thursday.

Nurses vote in favor of strike authorization

Nearly 90 percent of unionized nurses who cast ballots yesterday voted in favor of strike authorization against Stanford Hospital and Clinics (SHC) and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH). The Committee for Recognition of Nursing Achievement (CRONA) urged its member nurses to approve strike authorization in response to an ongoing contract dispute with the two hospitals.
