Our Commitment to Our Patients
Our hospitals will continue to deliver high-quality care to our patients during the week-long strike called by the union.
We are deeply disappointed with the unions’ decisions to ask employees to walk out on our patients. This is the ninth strike the California Nurses Union has called against our medical centers in less than two years. It is unclear what the union hopes to accomplish through this strike since the past walkouts have brought us no closer to agreement.
Keep in mind that a nurse who chooses to work full-time at our hospitals with CNA contracts:
- Earns an average of $137,000 per year (based on 2012 W2 data).
- Receives a generous employer paid pension.
- Gets up to 40 paid days off annually.
- And has the option of 100% employer paid health insurance, or low-cost benefits.
