Nurses at Kaiser Sunset to Lead Candlelight Vigil for a Fair Contract Tonight

May 4th, 2011

Registered Nurses at Kaiser Los Angeles Medical Center will participate in a candlelight vigil tonight to urge Kaiser Permanente to bargain in good faith toward a fair contract that  minimizes risks to patient care.

RNs have proposed that the hospital agree to provide the nurses with meaningful recourse to enforce staffing ratios that are adequate for safe and effective patient care.

RNs at Kaiser LAMC engaged in a successful one-day strike in March, and have authorized another one-day strike for later this month.  The nurses will be joined in their upcoming strike by social workers, psychologists, dieticians and other healthcare professionals at hospitals and clinics throughout Southern California.
