Strike News In Toledo

The union representing 950 nurses on strike against Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo says a tentative contract agreement has been reached. Nurses have been on strike there since May 6. The union says the agreement addresses many of the nurses’ concerns, including quality-of-life issues. Nurses complained shortages were forcing them to routinely work extra hours and be on-call day after day. The union plans to vote on the contract before the weekend.
