Nurses at Kaiser Permanente LA Medical Center left frustrated after meeting with hospital management one week after staging a protest on Sunset Blvd. amid a contract dispute.

The nurses, members of the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) threatened to strike again should collective bargaining negotiations continue to drag on. The Union is demanding safer staffing by hospital management to protect patient care.

Kaiser came in "woefully unprepared" to the meeting, according to a NUHW representative, after which union members marched into the Director of Nursing's office to demand that she start appearing at the bargaining table herself.
