YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The remaining nurses that were prevented from returning to Northside Medical Center after a one-day strike last week have returned to their positions.

The 485 members of the Youngstown General Duty Nurses Association picketed the hospital for one day in response to stalled contract negotiations.

After the strike, the hospital administration allowed some of the nurses to report for work but others were turned away and told to come back at various times over the weekend.

Replacement nurses were brought in to cover the nurse’s shifts during the strike, and those nurses had to fulfill a three-day contract.

In a show of solidarity, YGDNA members gathered outside the hospital on Monday to show support for the nurses returning to work.
