LEBANON, Pa. (AP) - Employees of a Pennsylvania nursing home have voted to strike for the second year in a row.

The Lebanon Daily News reports the union representing employees at Cedar Haven Healthcare Center in Lebanon provided a strike notice Tuesday following a vote. American Federation of State County and Municpal Employees Local 2731 had previously moved to strike last fall before a contract was approved.

District council director Steve Mullen says employee health care contributions and reductions in paid time off are at the center of contract talks this year. Mullen says employees have already sacrificed a “tremendous amount” and are being asked to give up more.

The principal owner of Cedar Haven’s parent company, Stone Barn Holdings, did not respond to a request for comment.
