Negotiations set between ARH Officials and Union Wednesday

Appalachian Regional Healthcare officials and a labor union hope they can reach a contract agreement.

Hospital and Union officials are expected to meet Wednesday in Lexington at 1 p.m.

If they do not come to an agreement by midnight Wednesday, nurses would then go on a 24 hour strike.

The Southern United Nurses/National Nurses United Labor Union issued the notice last week.

Only ARH Hospitals in Hazard and Beckley, West Virginia will be affected.
