Registered Nurses on the Picket Line

Appalachian Regional Healthcare experiences it's second strike of the year.

Hundreds of registered nurses with the Kentucky and West Virginia Nurses Association are now on the picket line.

But while union members protest the ARH final contract proposal, permanent replacement nurses are hired.

Union members say more than 50-percent of their nurses joined the strike.

Union officials say with permanent replacement nurses being hired, this could end up in court.
