WASHINGTON, Pa. - Workers at a hospital in western Pennsylvania have voted to ratify a three-year contract, avoiding a threatened strike.
Service Employees International Union Healthcare PA says an agreement was reached during a 30-hour bargaining session last week. The union had voted to strike if they could not reach an agreement.
The union's current contract with the 274-bed community hospital about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh had expired last month.
The contract had passed by a 92 percent approval among the 400 workers.
The hospital hadn't commented on the negotiations with its service workers, who include dietary and housekeeping employees.
