    Hey JD,

    I'm an RN at UCLA and I have yet to hear anything. I know fact-finding ended last week and no word yet regarding whether or not a contract was reached.

    my sister saw nurses on strike in ucsd-hillcrest about a week or two ago. she said she didnt know what it was about except that one of the placards read - "listen to your nurses!"

    I think it was an informational picket NOT a strike. There was an informational picket at UCLA a couple weeks ago.
