Thousands of registered nurses in the East Bay are on a one day strike.

The 3,200 unionized nurses work at seven hospitals managed by Sutter Health in Berkeley, Oakland, Castro Valley, San Leandro Antioch and Vallejo.

It is the sixth in a series of strikes. The most recent was on July 3. Sutter Health says the hospitals will remain open and replacement nurses have been brought in.
