INDIANA, Pa. (KDKA) — A nurses union in Indiana County has announced plans to go on strike.
The Indiana Registered Nurses Association plans to hold a one-day strike on Monday, Nov. 26, starting at 7 a.m. at each hospital entrance. The nurses are offering to return to work on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

The next negotiation session is scheduled for Nov. 29.
