Allina Health 4.26.23 statement on SEIU strike authorization

Allina Health is disappointed that certain SEIU-represented Allina Health employees at our Abbott Northwestern and Mercy hospitals and in our Central Laboratory voted to authorize a work stoppage. We want to reach agreements that are fair and recognize the priorities of both parties in a timely manner. On average, it takes new unions 465 days to ratify a first contract, so the length of the negotiations is not unusual. We firmly believe a work stoppage would not benefit anyone and certainly not our patients and communities. At this time, Allina Health has not received a 10-day notice and we remain hopeful that the parties will reach a settlement before any work stoppage takes place.
