Allina Health 9.16.22 statement on MNA negotiations

We are grateful to our care teams for their extraordinary effort during the Minnesota Nurses Association 3-day strike and their dedication every day to providing safe, high-quality care to the communities we serve.  

Now that MNA’s strike has concluded, we look forward to negotiating with the Minnesota Nurses Association on Sept. 21. We are committed to working with the union on a contract agreement that not only recognizes the contributions of our nurses, but also honors our commitment to our patients and communities. As we have said all along, strikes do not benefit anyone and only hinder our efforts to negotiate in good faith.  

We have offered a wage increase of 12% over the three years of the contract. We have also made progress on some of the union's other priorities, including workplace safety and diversity, equity and inclusion.  

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. We hope to see more progress on issues that are important to both parties at our upcoming bargaining sessions next week.
