About 700 workers from nursing homes voted to go on strike Friday, stating unfair labor practices as the reason for the walkout.

The strike vote is taking place at Comprehensive Healthcare and Priority Healthcare facilities in Pennsylvania. The Grove at New Castle is one of the facilities in the Shenango Valley that went on strike Friday, Sept. 2, at 7 a.m.

 Twenty-five people from The Grove are currently picketing at the facility.

21 News reached out to the administration of The Grove at New Castle and was told they would not be commenting on the current labor situation.

The workers' statement provided to 21 News cited the facilities "failed to provide significant enough investments into staffing and care. Negotiations started Thursday morning and ended in the early hours of Friday morning."

A statement from the union said, "Our goal has always been - and continues to be - to get a fair contract that invests in this entire workforce and will meaningfully address the staffing crisis," said Matthew Yarnell, President of SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania.

At this time, no additional bargaining dates for SEIU Healthcare Pennsylvania union workers have been set.
