The Minnesota nurses strike
will be open-ended
unless averted
The Twin Cities nurses of Minnesota have issued a strike notice set for Tuesday July 6, according to the Minnesota Nurses Association. Unlike the one-day strike held June 10, the upcoming strike will be open-ended.

Last week the hospitals and nurses met face to face at the bargaining table, but Cindy Olson, a nurse and member of the union's bargaining team said in a video statement that the hospitals were "unwilling to meet this weekend and progress...which really left us no choice but to file a strike notice."

The nurses and hospitals will be able to hold negotiation discussions up until the day of the strike.

"[There is] still plenty of time to reach a settlement if they are willing to do that," Olson said.

Heads have been butting for months now, as the 14 hospitals and 12,000 nurses have been unable to agree on new contract terms. The nurses are fighting for better patient-to-nurse ratios, while the hospitals say the nurses are being unreasonable, as the current patient ratio standards are much more advanced than national standards.
