MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Thirty eight days after they went on strike, Allina nurses will once again take a vote Thursday.

Nurses will vote to accept or reject the latest contract offer, which was negotiated Tuesday morning. The deal came after a nearly 17-hour negotiating session at the Governor’s residence.

Union leaders said they support the deal, which addresses health insurance changes, staffing and workplace safety.

Nurses voted down another offer earlier this month.

The strike at five Twin Cities hospitals started back on Labor Day.

    when you vote, recall that nothing is FREE, contrary to what you have been told. Read the local paper and our Governors stance on the ACA, it is not affordable. Then consider your increased demands and what they do to the cost of healthcare. Finally ask yourself, “why should I work less, get more, and not have to pay something for it?” If you cannot come to the conclusion that there is not free lunch, then you are part of the problem and not part of the solution.
