(Buffalo) –   July 28, 2017 – MNA nurses at Buffalo Hospital reached a tentative agreement with Allina Health on July 27, averting the need for a planned informational picket.

“Allina Health saw that nurses were united in opposition to a proposed scheduling system, and agreed to changes,” said MNA Buffalo Chair Debra Kosciolek, RN. “Nurses negotiated a fair contract that allows us to continue providing patients with the care they need and expect.”

Now that a tentative contract agreement has been reached, nurses are canceling the informational picket scheduled for Aug. 2.

Details of the agreement will be shared with members, who will vote on it Aug. 2.
