(Buffalo) –   August 3, 2017 – MNA nurses at Buffalo Hospital voted for a new contract with Allina Health on August 2, after standing firm in opposition to proposals from Allina Health that would have interfered with nurses’ ability to safely care for patients.

“We negotiated a contract that recognizes the important work nurses do,” said MNA Buffalo Chair Debra Kosciolek, RN. “Nurses signed petitions, marched in a rainy Buffalo Days parade, and were prepared to hold an informational picket to fight for a fair contract.”

The new three-year contract does not contain a proposed scheduling system that would have harmed the hospital’s ability to recruit and retain nurses and disrupted RNs’ scheduled time off.
