Striking bus drivers suffered a setback when the San Francisco Labor Council advised sympathetic members of support unions to return to work. The order affects about 275 members of 13 unions who had left the job Saturday in support of 300 striking bus drivers. "This means the toll takers will be back, and ferry service will resume at 6 a.m. (Thursday)," a Golden Gate Transit District official said. The strike has not caused significant problems, because commuters have used carpools.

Registered nurses who struck six major hospitals in San Francisco and Daly City voted to accept a contract offer and return to work Wednesday, officials said. The strikers voted by a 77-23 margin to accept a 21% pay increase over 34 months, the California Nurses Assn. said, and will end their 26-day walkout.

Expected traffic entanglements did not occur Monday as a strike idling buses and ferries of the Golden Gate Bridge District entered its third day. Thousands of commuters, in a scene reminiscent of Los Angeles drivers during the 1984 Olympics, followed contingency plans. They left home early, formed car pools, and rode privately operated ferries. Some apparently stayed home.
