     Updated—Healthcare Workers Avert Strike at Los Robles Medical Center in Thousand Oaks.

     The threatened walkout would have lasted for five days starting May 22.

     Instead, the employees will be voting on whether to accept the proposed settlement that includes a 15 percent pay raise over three years plus protection for healthcare and education benefits for workers.

     The labor dispute involved 3,000 workers at five HCA hospitals in California including Los Robles and the vote will involve all those workers.

     The union had said that 97 per cent of the workers voted to authorize a strike over what they allege are unfair labor practices by the company.

     The workers claimed short staffing, low wages, and worker and patient safety concerns are the main issues.



     Port Hueneme police have arrested a suspect on vehicle theft and weapons charges.

     Late Wednesday morning, officers spotted a stolen motorcycle traveling in the area of Ventura and Bard roads and tried to pull it over.

     When they spotted the suspect walking away from the residence he was contacted and taken into custody without incident.

     Police say they found the 29-year-old Oxnard man in possession of a loaded handgun.

     He was already out on bail at the time of the incident so he was booked back into the Ventura County on theft, drug, and weapons charges.
