San Francisco Chronicle, March 14, 2008
A planned three-day strike by nurses at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez, CA, has been averted after negotiators and the union found common ground. The facility is operated by Contra Costa County, which withdrew its proposals for cutbacks in retirement plans and healthcare benefits, according to the union. A 10-day strike is still planned at Sutter Health affiliates in California.
