WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Nurses from Ascension Via Christi St. Francis on Monday signed a petition to create a union in Wichita.

The petition was filed through the National Labor Relations Board and signed by the National Nurses Organizing Committee - Missouri & Kansas/National Nurses United and an employer at Via Christi.

“We have received notice of the petition and are still evaluating our response to this action,” said Ascension Via Christi CEO Kevin Strecker in a statement.
