ARH And Striking Nurses Still In Talks

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Appalachian Regional Healthcare management and striking nurses from West Virginia and Kentucky are still talking.

As of Monday night, neither side released any information and were still talking with a federal mediator in Lexington, Ky.

The West Virginia Nurses Association says it will try one more time to come to a resolution.

ARH officials say they've not received a counter offer from the nearly 600 West Virginia and Kentucky nurses, who voted down the company's contract offer September 27th.

Nurses then went on strike at nine ARH operations September 30th.

Nurses maintain the strike isn't over money. Rather, they say
it's about mandatory overtime and patient care.
