The Minnesota Nurses Association has been in an open ended strike at 5 Twin Cities area hospitals since Labor Day.
On Monday they courageously voted down Allina's latest proposal.
Their fight is just as much about protecting patients as it is about protecting their own families. The nurses still need language to address the staffing level problems. It is also ridiculous that someone who works in the hospital would not have access to free or affordable healthcare for their families. Allina's latest offer still forces the nurses off their affordable healthcare plans in 2020. Like so many employers they don't offer wage or other incentives high enough to offset those healthcare increases.
Many of the nurses have continued to hold the picket line, while they have sadly watched some of their coworkers cross the line and return to work.
They need our support more than ever now. Please spend as much time as you can on the picket lines with the nurses. Even if you can only spend 30 minutes each time, your supported is needed and much appreciated. A couple hours each week is not too much to ask. Bring your family, friends or a coworker.
