The Thanksgiving holiday is closing in and nurses are still on the picket line without a new contract at Appalachian Regional Healthcare.

Late Tuesday afternoon officials told WYMT the two sides had not reached a contract agreement.

On Wednesday representatives from both sides are scheduled to meet with West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin in Charleston.

“There have not been any substantive breakthroughs but there have been meaningful discussions,” Rick King said.

“We're not gonna give up hope but you know we're out here as long as it takes,” Linda Campbell said.

The meeting time with Governor Manchin is is now set for 8:30 in the Wednesday morning.

Four representatives from each side are invited to that meeting, and some officials say they think the governor might act as a mediator to bring the unions and ARH closer to a solution.
