Fairview mental health worker strike called off; Allina walkout still planned
September 30, 2022
Progress after 14 hours of negotiations Wednesday prompted mental health workers at the M Health Fairview University of Minnesota Medical Center to call off a planned three-day strike.
"The bargaining team can and will refile the strike notice if needed, but are hopeful they are going to be able to reach a deal," said Brenda Hilbrich, executive vice president of SEIU Healthcare Minnesota & Iowa.
A walkout remains scheduled starting Monday for mental health workers at Allina Health's Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, and at the Fridley campus of Mercy Hospital.
