Judge weighs University of California nurses' right to strike

San Francisco Chronicle, June 18, 2010

A San Francisco judge will hold a hearing to consider issuing an injunction preventing thousands of University of California registered nurses from striking. Superior Court Judge Peter J. Busch issued a temporary restraining order last week that averted a planned June 10 strike of about 11,000 UC nurses. He based that decision on the university's argument that the striking nurses would pose a threat to public safety. In essence, an injunction would prevent the nurses from rescheduling the one-day strike, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
