Nurses Strike Expected Thursday

minnesota nurses association sign Nurses Strike Expected Thursday

The union representing Twin Cities nurses is willing to resume talks with a one-day strike deadline just  days away but talks are not likely.   There’s no indication a federal mediator will call for resumption of negotiations.   Some 12 thousand nurses plan to walk off the job for one day next Thursday forcing 14 hospitals to hire replacements. A hospital spokeswoman says the union’s staffing proposal would cost the industry an additional 250 million dollars a year. Talks broke off last Friday with no indication of any progress.
