Mon., 7:02am: Strike set at Northside Hospital

YOUNGSTOWN – Nurses at ValleyCare Northside Hospital are set for a one-day strike on Tuesday.

The Ohio Nurses Association says the latest contract offer from Community Health Systems, which owns ValleyCare, is different than those offered to other unions in the company and that it prevents nurses from advocating for the patients.

ValleyCare said it would maintain services throughout the strike and that the strike would not change its contract position.
