Mediator calls Minnesota nurses, hospitals back to table

Minneapolis Star Tribune, June 23, 2010

A federal mediator has called Minneapolis-St. Paul hospitals and their nurses back to the negotiating table in a bid to head off what could be a costly and extended work stoppage. Both sides said they have agreed to meet Thursday, though it remains unclear if that would lead to extended talks. The union has voted to authorize a strike. "Our nurses look forward to returning to the bargaining table Thursday and are hopeful we can engage in meaningful negotiations with the Twin Cities Hospitals," the Minnesota Nurses Association said in a written statement.
