UNAC/UHCP Nurses from Kaiser South Bay stand with CNA nurses during their one-day strike at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center on December 22

December 2011

UNAC/UHCP State Secretary Barbara Blake and Kaiser South Bay nurses join the CNA strike picket line at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center in their fight for safe staffing during breaks and meal periods.  “Every Registered Nurse in California has a right to rest breaks and a meal period where they know their patients are being safely cared for.  Not only is it the law, it's the right thing to do for patients, and hospitals like Long Beach Memorial need to do right by their patients and nurses” said Barbara Blake, RN.
