Nurses and Caregivers Rally for Contracts

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Nurses and caregivers from Regional Hospital of Scranton held a rally and candlelight vigil Wednesday to call on administrators for what they call a fair union contract.

Workers took to the streets to ask for affordable health insurance and fair wages.

Their contract with Commonwealth Health expired last month.

Employees Newswatch 16 spoke to say they want the situation resolved as fast as possible.

"We want a fair contract, we want to work, we want to take care of our patients. I've worked here for 39 years. I love my job. I want to still be able to work and take care of my patients," Michelle Uhranosky, Registered Nurse.

A union representative said negotiations begin Thursday in Lackawanna County.
