Easton Hospital Union leaders, workers, politicians, and public gathered to support over 500 unionized employees who are wondering whats next when St. Luke's University Health Network takes over on July 1st. In a statement hospital officials tell us they have been in contact with the unions. Amy Hower, President of the United Independent Union Local 2, who represent nurses, spoke at the rally and says different. "That is completely untrue, we got no information we still have no information about what's going to happen to our employees from June 30th to July 1."

Hospital officials also say they've offered 200 jobs to Easton Hospital employees. Union officials tell us none of those are union jobs. Carol Lorah, President of the Service Employee International Union Eastern Chapter. She says she doesn't think St. Luke's wants anything to do with unions. "That's all the management, all the non union, but as far as union workers I don't know if there's gonna be much of any."
