more than 11,000 registered nurses at five university of california (uc) hospitals are voting this week on a tentative 26-month contract that if approved, would provide for significant improvements for patients and nurses...

...key highlights of the pact include steps to ensure that nurses have time for meal and rest breaks during shifts so they remain alert and stronger contract provisions for rns elected by their peers to address patient safety issues with managers. additionally, the rns were successful in limiting future increases in costs for their health coverage and gained pay increases that will average at least 11 percent over the term of the contract....
