Members of Teamsters Local 538 voted Thursday to give a 10-day strike notice to Passavant Health and Retirement Center in Zelienople.
Betty Fischer, Teamsters Local 538 secretary/treasurer, said the vote was “overwhelming.”
She said about 140 employees are working under extensions of three different contracts, adding two of the pacts had expired in November and one in January.
Fischer said the employees are unhappy over several issues involving pay rates, working conditions and layoffs.
According to its website, Passavant offers several senior housing options at its complex, including independent living and personal care facilities.
