Minneapolis, MN – Picket lines at Allina hospitals remain strong as the first week of the strike by more than 4000 members of the Minnesota Nurses Association draws to a close, Sept 11. The open-ended unfair labor practices strike began Labor Day, and comes in response to an attempt by Allina to extract major concessions in nurses’ heath care.

A major fundraiser is being planned for Friday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. at the CWA Hall, 3521 E Lake Street in Minneapolis to raise money for the strike fund.
