Nurses Picketing For Better Working Conditions And Pay

Nurses picketing outside Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Twin Cities Community Hospital yesterday were part of a statewide protest against Tenet HealthCare. The California Nurses Association is asking for better pay, better staffing ratios and more resources to take care of patients. Tenet officials say they are disappointed with the union’s actions and felt they had made good progress in the contract negotiations and will continue to negotiate in good faith.
