Engineers strike at local hospital
October 05, 2013, 05:00 AM

Operating engineers are striking at four Bay Area medical centers, including Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City, but the facility remains open.

The International Union of Operation Engineers Local 39 launched a strike Tuesday, Oct. 1 at Sequoia, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco and Dominican Hospital Santa Cruz. The union represents about 80 employees who maintain and repair facilities and equipment at the four hospitals.

Sequoia Hospital is “disappointed by the union’s decision to strike ... but our hospitals will remain fully staffed and open during this strike and will continue to provide the excellent care our patients have come to expect,” Dignity representative Marty Heires said in a prepared statement.

Dignity Health said it has offered union members wage increases comparable to those given other unions in recent contracts.

Not sure
