Allina Health 9.12.22 statement on MNA strike

As we progress through the first day of the Minnesota Nurses Association strike, Allina Health continues to be focused on delivering safe, reliable care. With patient safety as our priority, our teams have rescheduled a limited number of non-emergent appointments to ensure we are meeting our community’s emergent and on-going health care needs.  

We are grateful for all members of our care teams who are working to ensure continuity of care each day and throughout the duration of the 3-day strike. 

Based on MNA’s proposed 30% wage increase over the 3-year contract, as well as 30 additional economic proposals, it is clear that agreement on an economic package is the significant issue. As we have said all along, strikes do not benefit anyone and the only path to reaching agreement is through negotiations. At the conclusion of MNA’s strike, we are hopeful that they will be ready to engage in serious negotiations with the assistance of a federal mediator to help the parties remain at the table until a deal is reached.
