Nurses and health care workers at 15 Sutter facilities hold one-day strike


SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KION) -- Nurses and health care workers at 15 facilities across Northern California will hold a one-day strike today, April 18, 2022, to protest Sutter Health’s refusal to address their proposals about safe staffing and health and safety protections.

This includes the Santa Cruz location in Soquel.

The California Nurses Association (CNA), an affiliate of National Nurses United, and CNA affiliate Caregivers and Healthcare Employees Union (CHEU)  announced the strike.

It comes after near-unanimous strike authorization votes in March.

More than 8,000 registered nurses and health care workers are participating in the strike.

Sutter Health RNs and health care workers have been in negotiations since June 2021 for a new contract. They are urging management to invest in nursing staff and agree to a contract that provides:

  • Safe staffing that allows nurses to provide safe and therapeutic care
  • Pandemic readiness protections that require the hospitals to invest in personal protective equipment stockpiles and comply with California's PPE stockpile law.

Nurses and health care workers will be picketing from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the following facilities:
