UPMC Altoona Nurses Officially on Strike

As of 7am Tuesday morning, Nurses began to picket outside of UPMC Altoona
ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - Several hundred nurses at UPMC Altoona are now on strike

They walked off the job, and began to picket at 7am Tuesday morning.

The union has been planning this strike for weeks after contract negotiations with UPMC Altoona fell apart.

The union says the hospital will spend millions on replacement nurses who are contracted for four days.

After the strike ends, there will be a transition period before the striking nurses are allowed back to work.

The hospital is not saying how long that could take.
