Allina nurses vote down contract offer, authorize strike plans


Nurses for five Allina Health hospitals “overwhelmingly” voted to reject a three-year contract offer from their company that would have eliminated union-backed health insurance and moved nurses to the plans covering other employees.

The Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) reported the voting results late Monday night, and noted that results at each voting site exceeded the two-thirds majority needed to authorize strike plans at all five hospitals. Nurses at the voting locations said they either wanted to keep their current health benefits or didn’t want to surrender them without concessions.
