(Before It's News)

Minneapolis, MN – More than 200 union members and striking nurses rallied across from Abbot Northwestern hospital, Sept. 30, and then marched on the corporate headquarters of Allina Health to press the demand for a decent contract. The march was organized by the strike support committee called Workers United for Nurses.

More than 4000 nurses have been on strike since Sept. 5. A key issue is Allina’s insistence that the nurses make major concessions on health care.

“We are here to stand with stand with nurses. Your fight is fight. You are an inspiration to all of us,” said Cherrene Horazuk of Workers United for Nurses and president of AFSCME Local 3800.

Striking Minnesota Nurses Association members will vote Monday, Oct. 3 on a new contract agreement. The proposal was placed before MNA members without a recommendation from the MNA negotiation team. At the rally a number of striking nurses expressed opposition to the proposed agreement.
