MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Nearly three weeks after the strike began, nurses and negotiators from Allina Health will head back to the bargaining table this week.

Allina said a federal mediator has asked both parties to resume negotiations. A session is set for Tuesday.

Thousands of nurses in the Twin Cities have been on strike since Sept. 5.

They’re upset with Allina’s health insurance plan and also have workplace security concerns.

Temporary nurses have been working at the five hospitals affected during the strike.

    we all have security concerns why is that on the list of issues…which will go away or be a none issue once they get the benefits— they want like last time…..

    Before you spout off, know the facts. Dr. Wheeler has brainwashed the public. As a hospital in downtown, security IS an issue. Hospitals need the training in escalating behavior, in which Allina lacks. The other hospitals which already have the contracts ratified, they still have that insurance that Allina is taking away, and also have training in escalating behavior. Until you have worked in healthcare, you DON”T know what is going on.

    The MNA nurses at Fairview and HealthPartners do not have the same health plans that the MNA nurses at Allina are fighting for. Just look it up on the other systems’ websites.
