sutter strike Jan 2014
RNs at Sutter’s Alta Bates Summit Medical Center hold a large protest on 1/15/14 to protest what they say are wildly misplaced priorities as the hospital hands out huge pay increases for top executives and sets hospital charges at well beyond their cost while pushing major cuts for patients and registered nurses.


Registered Nurses held a 7-day strike at five East Bay Sutter hospitals starting Friday, May 17 to protest the corporation’s continuing demand for sweeping cuts in patient care protections and healthcare coverage for nurses and their families.

The walkout involved more than 3,100 RNs as well as respiratory, X-ray and other technicians at Alta Bates Summit facilities in Berkeley and Oakland, Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, and Sutter Delta in Antioch.

Welcome Sutter RNs:

Here you will find links to the facilities owned by Sutter in which CNA/NNU represented nurses work. Sutter corporation is engaged in a serious attack on its registered nurses that pose a substantial threat to patients and communities across Northern California.

Since 2005, Sutter has amassed over $3.7 billion in profits (net income under its façade of being a not-for-profit and exploiting the considerable tax breaks it enjoys as a result). Sutter presently sits on over $11.6 billion in assets. Sutter’s abundant wealth is apparent in how it compensates its corporate officers – paying out almost $98 million in salary to 18 top executives from 2005 to 2009.

RNs are standing strong and organizing to protect their contracts, and to ensure they can continue to deliver the highest quality patient care to their communities. We will post links to bargaining updates and other materials as they become available. Please check back often for updates.
