Minnesota nurses, hospitals prepare for one-day walkout

Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 7, 2010

A nurses strike seemed all but inevitable after talks broke down between the Minnesota Nurses Association and 14 hospitals, with each side blaming the other for refusing to compromise. Before the afternoon was out, the nurses and hospitals were shifting gears to prepare for the scheduled one-day walkout, which would start at 7 a.m. June 10. Hospital officials are vowing to operate as normally as possible, saying they hope to keep patient disruption to a minimum with the help of thousands of replacement nurses, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
