Nurses Ask Hospitals to Resume Negotiations

nurse strike2 Nurses Ask Hospitals to Resume Negotiations

If hospitals agree, talks would resume a day after nurses vote for second strike

The union is asking that the 14 hosptials return to the bargaining table next Tuesday – that’s a day after the rank and file nurses vote on a second, open-ended strike.  In a letter to hospital administrators, union leaders say they are willing to modify some of their demands.  Susan Mason, lead negotiator for the Minnesota Nurses Association, says it’s clear that even after last week’s one day strike, hosptials are holding firm.  The main issue continues to be staffing levels.  The hospitals say they are willing to resume negotiations only if the nurses union is willing to modify some of it’s proposals.
