Allina CEO Ken Paulus will not take pay until nurses settle

Minneapolis Star Tribune, May 26, 2010

The chief executive of Minnesota-based Allina Hospitals and Clinics is voluntarily working without pay until the hospital chain reaches an agreement with its nurses. After Minneapolis-St. Paul nurses voted overwhelmingly to authorize a one-day strike last week, Ken Paulus sent an e-mail to all Allina employees saying he had asked his board to suspend his pay as a way to "align our leadership with you." There are currently contentious contract negotiations underway between 14 Twin Cities hospitals and their 12,000 nurses. Allina owns five of the 14 hospitals involved in the talks, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
