The Minnesota Nurses Association and management at 14 hospitals announced a proposed contract settlement ahead of a threatened walkout of more than 12,000 hospital nurses that had been scheduled for July 6. Instead, members of the Minnesota Nurses Association that day will vote on whether to approve a new collective-bargaining agreement. The proposed agreement has been approved by negotiating committees for all 14 hospitals. The nurses went on a 24-hour strike on June 10, but the move did not sway hospitals to the union’s demands that the hospitals staff for 100% patient capacity at all times while agreeing to divert patients when the hospitals reach 90% capacity.
