Minneapolis-St. Paul nurses' union eyes 1-day walkout

Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 18, 2010

The union that represents 12,000 Minneapolis-St. Paul nurses said that it will limit any potential strike to one day, removing at least for now the specter of an open-ended walkout. It's the latest twist in heated contract negotiations between the Minnesota Nurses Association and 14 hospitals ahead of a strike authorization vote May 19. The union said a strike, if members OK it, would be only one day to limit disruptions to patient care, minimize lost income for nurses and yet still create significant headaches for hospital management, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
