Nurses gather on Welch Road in front of Stanford Hospital to protest for better working conditions. The Committee for Recognition of Nursing Achievement, the nursing union, has set out to renegotiate their contracts in favor of more pay, mental health support, and retirement support. Fred Taleghani, a member of CRONA’s negotiations team, said that although the issues the union was striking for have existed for a long time, COVID-19 made the issues worse. “The pandemic just kind of really exacerbated it [problems] and it also highlighted the fourth major issue that were dealing with, which is mental health.”
