Eugene-area hospice and home care nurses set to strike Feb. 10

By DON McINTOSH

More than 90 registered nurses at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Home Care Service near Eugene expect to begin a two-week strike at 7 a.m. Feb. 10.

The Oregon Nurses Association (ONA) contract with PeaceHealth expired in April 2023. The union has met 40 times with health system management since Feb. 14, 2023, without reaching agreement on a new contract. It was prepared to meet again with a federal mediator Jan. 23, but PeaceHealth canceled.
