Members of the California nurses union have respected a judge's order barring them from striking at University of California hospitals on June 10, according to the Los Angeles Times. However, even though they have agreed not to strike, the union plans to rally at the hospitals and student health centers, as well as two private facilities in the Los Angeles area.

On June 8, a California judge issued the temporary restraining order barring more than 10,000 nurses from striking, coming at the request of the California Public Employment Relations Board.

Nurses had planned to strike at the UC hospitals, as well as at Marina del Rey Hospital, Citrus Valley Medical Center and Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in San Pedro. Even though the nurses are not barred from striking at these private hospitals, union officials and officials at these hospitals are discussing negotiations.
