MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 3,500 hospital workers who are part of the Service Employee International Union (SEIU)  reached a tentative contract agreement with eight metro-area hospitals, averting a strike that was authorized by the union earlier this week.

Details of the agreement will not be released until the members of SEIU have an opportunity to review and vote on them.

Negotiators representing both workers and the hospitals met all day long on Wednesday, and voting on the tentative agreement is scheduled for next week.

The affected hospitals include: Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, Fairview Riverside Hospital in Minneapolis, Children’s Hospitals in Minneapolis and St. Paul, HealthEast Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul, HealthEast St. John’s Hospital in Maplewood, North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, and Park Nicollet/Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park.
