The more than 600 nureses represented by the Oregon Nurses Association says they've met 17 times in recent months to reach a contract, but with no success.


John Nangle has been a nurse at St. Charles for ten years.


He says the nurses don't like some of the changes administrators want to do like doing away with floating "critical care" nurses that are pressed into service when emergencies arise, or replacing charge nurses with non clinical administrators.


The hospital did not hold interviews on the picket, but said in a press release they look forward to future negotiations with the nurses in their attempt to reach a contract agreement.
