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


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.
