Nurses to urge legislation to put patient needs before corporate greed in our hospitals 

(St. Paul) – February 2, 2024 – On Monday, February 5, 2024, nurses with the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) will be joined by labor and legislator allies to introduce an agenda for the 2024 legislative session that will work to put patient needs before corporate greed in our hospitals.

After corporate healthcare executives killed legislation last session that would have improved nurse staffing and retention in Minnesota hospitals, nurses will be back at the Capitol this year seeking new protections for nurses and patients at the bedside. Nurses will also call for important new measures to hold hospital CEOs accountable to our patients, our communities, and our state through public transparency and regulation.

Nurses will be joined at the press conference by representatives from the Minnesota AFL-CIO, AFSCME Council 5, AFSCME Council 65, United Steelworkers, United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW), and the Minnesota Association of Professional Employees (MAPE). Workers will be joined by state legislators ready to fight for patients and workers at the Capitol this legislative session.
