(Duluth) – July 25, 2016 – Nurses at Essentia hospitals in Duluth and Superior are taking their frustration with the lack of progress on contract negotiations to the public with an informational picket at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth on July 27.
Nurses have been negotiating with Essentia Health since April. Essentia is trying to force nurses into unacceptable concessions on health insurance while rejecting nurses’ proposals to ensure nurses have the right number of patients at one time in order to care for them safely.
Nurses and supporters will call on Essentia to negotiate a fair contract.
What: MNA nurse informational picket
When: 1-5:30 p.m., July 27
Where: St. Mary’s Medical Center, 407 East Third Street, Duluth
