Los Angeles Times, October 30, 2008
Service Employees International Union members struck today at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, CA, where temporary workers had been hired in anticipation of the one-day action. Patient care at the nonprofit hospital was unaffected, said a hospital spokeswoman. Strikers included respiratory therapists, nursing assistants and licensed vocational nurses, as well as housekeepers, food workers, and registration clerks. Neither the union nor the hospital had complete figures on how many people went on strike.
