 nurses voting Nurse Voting Underway

12 thousand nurses are  voting today on a tentative contract with 14 Twin Cities hospitals. There’s a mix of opinions among the rank-and file. Although some nurses have expressed disappointment with the settlement, their union is predicting passage. The nurses would have been on strike today without a deal. Key issues in the dispute were proposed pension cuts and staffing levels. The hospitals removed their pension proposal and the Minnesota Nurses Association dropped its demand for nurse-to-patient ratios. Instead the two sides agreed to address the issue through committees. Results of today’s voting are expected sometime after midnight.
