HAZARD, Ky.


Registered nurses are planning a one-day strike at two hospitals in Kentucky and West Virginia operated by Appalachian Regional Healthcare.

The National Nurses United labor union issued a news release in which the nurses said they will strike May 1 to protest hospital demands that include what nurses see as unsafe work loads, the extension of a wage freeze and health coverage cuts.

The Lexington Herald-Leader said the hospitals are Appalachian Regional in Hazard and Beckley Appalachian Regional in Beckley, W.Va.

ARH said on its website the company will do what is necessary to continue "quality service to patients." The company also said it has filed unfair labor practice charges with the National Labor Relations Board against the Southern United Nurses/National Nurses United for alleged failure to bargain.
