Striking nurses are set for a vote Monday on whether to accept the latest proposal from Allina Health.
Should nurses accept the offer, it would end a four-week strike. In the event that there is a majority vote ratifying the contracts, the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) will meet with Allina to execute a strike settlement agreement, which will include return to work provisions. The main sticking points so far have been health care benefits for union workers and patient to nurse ratios.
The MNA negotiating team says it’s not making a recommendation on the proposal. Monday’s vote will be decided by a simple majority.
