MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Negotiators for Allina Health and a group of striking nurses are set to return to the bargaining table next week.

According to Allina Health, the federal mediator asked both parties to resume negotiations Friday evening.

A negotiation session is set for Tuesday.

Thousands of nurses in the Twin Cities have been on strike since Sept. 5, citing Allina’s health insurance plan and workplace security concerns as their top priorities in negotiations.
