Nurses picket Sutter

About two-dozen nurses who work at Sutter Tracy Community Hospital held what they called an “informational picket” outside the medical center, Thursday, Dec. 12. The employees say they were protesting hospital management’s unwillingness to bargain in their contract negotiations with the California Nurses Association, which represents the nurses. The negotiations have continued without agreement since June 2012. Hospital spokeswoman Catherine Larsen said Sutter has signed 29 tentative agreements during 47 bargaining sessions in that time but that those proposals have not been approved by the union. She added that patient care during the picket was not impacted.
