Nurses at Logan Health in Kalispell are on strike. Nurse union organizers say hospital officials were unwilling to compromise over pay and benefit negotiations, claims which hospital leaders deny.

The three-day strike started June 1. The union organizing the strike amid negotiations with Logan Health represents around 650 nurses.
