A hospital spokeswoman said no striking employees would lose their jobs over strike.  The approximately 20 striking employees who had been temporarily replaced on Thursday’s dayside shift would be allowed to return to work Saturday, she said.

More than 1,000 staffers had the option to strike but not all union members took part.
