St. Louis, MO. – Striking nurses will vote Friday on a new contract offer from St. John's Mercy Medical Center.

The offer came as the two sides met Thursday to try and resolve the walkout that began December 15th at the nonprofit Catholic hospital.

Union spokesman Shannon Duffy says union members had requested a chance to vote on the offer, even though union leaders found it lacking.

Union officials says the proposal is virtually unchanged from the hospital's previous offer. A key sticking point is whether nurses should be required to be union members.

Registered nurses will vote during meetings at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at a pavillion in Queeny Park.
