Nursing can be a rewarding but sometimes challenging job. People who enter into this industry often work very hard while also serving as a source of knowledge, comfort and life. In other words, we depend on nurses in unexpected ways when illness or injury strikes those we love. Like people in other service industries, nurses deserve not only a fair wage but also the security of knowing the contracts their union representatives have worked to arrange are ironclad agreements capable of protecting all involved parties from breach of contract.
Members of the California Nurses Association are learning that this is not always the case, as an ongoing contract dispute with Alta Bates Summit Medical Center heads toward round two with a hearing scheduled for March 12. This is one case where representation by a skilled lawyer experienced in dealing with contract disputes could be essential to emerge successfully from contract litigation.
