About 120 workers at Broomall Presbyterian Village will conduct a one-day strike today because of what their union called "bargaining in bad faith" by the 147-bed nursing home's management.
The union, Service Employees International Union Healthcare Pennsylvania, said 15 bargaining sessions over the last year had failed to produce a contract for the workers, who are negotiating their first contract.
Presby's Inspired Life, the Lafayette Hill organization that runs the home, said it had been "conscientiously meeting" with the union and remains committed to bargaining in good faith.
A spokesman, Dan Magee, said the home would ensure proper staffing during the strike. - Paul Schweizer
