Allina Health 9.9.22 statement on MNA contract negotiations

Allina Health’s priority is to provide safe, high-quality care throughout the duration of the Minnesota Nurses Association’s 3-day strike. 

Our negotiating team is meeting with the union again today and we continue to hope for continued progress since the open contracts will only be settled at the bargaining table. We are disappointed the union continues to demand an unsustainable wage increase of more than 30% over three years in addition to many other economic benefits. Rushing to a strike before exhausting all options such as engaging a neutral federal mediator does not benefit our employees, patients or the communities we serve. 

Our teams are committed to minimizing any disruptions in care and have built flexibility into our planning and operations. Patients will be contacted directly if there is any change in their appointments.  We want to emphasize to our community members that our hospitals, urgent care locations and primary care clinics are open for care.
