Nurses set to strike Youngstown's Northside Hospital at 7 a.m.

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio-  Members of the Ohio Nurses Association are standing their ground and going ahead with plans for a one day strike this morning. 

By 7 a.m. registered nurses at Northside medical center say they will be on the picket line.

Nurses met with union leaders Monday night. The union wanted to assure the membership that going on strike would not result in their termination.

The hospital is calling any strike by the nurses an unfair labor practice.

The hospital administration contends that the ONA violated the National Labor relations act by serving 3 separate and conflicting notifications to the hospital.

ONA leaders say they did everything they were supposed to do. "Our labor attorneys have looked at this. There's no validity to it.  Adequate notice has been given. We just feel the hospital is trying to keep us from talking about safe patient care. Obviously this is an eleventh hour ploy to keep people from going across the picket line with fear of reprisal of losing their job." said Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association President Eric Williams.

The union represents 485 nurses at the hospital.

According to a statement from Northside Hospital, the facility will remain open during the one-day strike.  Hospital officials say all emergency services, inpatient and outpatient care will be available.

Surgeries and diagnostic procedures also remain scheduled.
