(Bismarck, N.D.) – March 6, 2019 – An overwhelming majority of registered nurses at CHI St. Alexius Medical Center chose to be represented by the Minnesota Nurses Association during two days of voting this week.

“St. Alexius nurses want to provide top quality care to all our patients by having a voice in our workplace,” said Margo Maxon, an RN at the hospital. “Nurses believe coming together and speaking with one voice is the best way to advocate for our patients.”

“MNA members welcome St. Alexius nurses to our union family,” said MNA President Mary C. Turner. “We are excited to assist them as they take their seat at the table and have a say in their workplace.”

Nurses will now begin the process of organizing their new union by electing officers and initiating negotiations for a first contract.

The Minnesota Nurses Association represents 22,000 nurses in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa; and now North Dakota.
