California medical centers warn nurses that lockouts are a possibility

San Francisco Chronicle, December 11, 2007
Registered nurses set to strike at 13 Sutter Health hospitals in California should be prepared to be out of work longer than the planned two-day walkout, officials from the medical centers said. Most of the hospitals, with the exceptions of at least California Pacific Medical Center and St. Luke's hospital, plan to hire replacement workers for longer than just two days and lock out participating nurses for the remaining time.
