(Before It's News)

Minneapolis, MN – Members and supporters of Women Against Military Madness (WAMM) picketed with the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis on Sept. 25. The MNA went on strike at Allina hospitals on Labor Day.

WAMM member and former director Nikki LaSorella expressed the significance of the nurses’ strike, “This is about economic justice and we need to stand up with all people who are being treated unfairly because it impacts our economy.”

Colleen McGlip, also a WAMM member, participated in the picket, “I’m out here today because I care. These nurses are good strong fighters!” Doug McGlip, her husband, a former Teamster Local 1145 member, explained that solidarity is what motivated him to come out, “People have to pull together. An injury to one is an injury to all.”

This is the third WAMM picket in solidarity with MNA strikers. WAMM members have also been participating in the strike support committee Workers United for Nurses. WAMM plans to continue to support the nurses’ union throughout their strike.
