Union employees at Cabell Huntington Hospital have rejected a proposed contract.
The union says retirees would have lost their health insurance under the proposal. Current workers would have had to pay higher deductibles, co-pays and prescription costs.
The union says the proposal also didn't include any wage increases.
Cabell Huntington spokesman Charles Shumaker says hospital officials believe the proposal was fair and generous. He says the hospital will continue to negotiate in good faith.
Both sides say they hope to reach an agreement.
