The article about Santa Clara Valley Medical Center executives responding to potential strikes by doctors and other medical staff with threats mentions that California labor law allows striking union members to refuse to cross picket lines. However no further clarification is offered-does the law allow employers to refuse to reinstate striking workers? Does the law only apply to striking public sector workers like those at Valley Medical? If a journalist is going to report on an important public issue such as this one he or she should at least provide sufficient context for readers to understand what is being reported.
