“At 7 a.m. Monday, 15,000 nurses from the Twin Cities and Duluth began a three-day strike. It’s believed to be the largest private sector nurses strike in U.S. history. It comes after ongoing contract negotiations have reached a stalemate. Seven health providers are affected: M Health Fairview, Essentia, Health Partners, Allina Health, Children’s, North Memorial and St. Luke’s. Sixteen hospitals are involved. … The Minnesota Nurses Association and hospitals are at odds over a number of issues, from wages, to staffing and safety.” (09/12/22)
