Minneapolis, MN - Members of the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) were on picket lines in force today, June, 20, as more than 4800 nurses began the second day of their seven-day unfair labor practices strike at five Allina Hospitals. A key issue is Allina’s demand that nurses take a big hit on health care benefits.

Meredith Aby-Keirstead, a leader of the Anti-War Committee, was one of the many progressives who joined today’s picketing of Abbott Northwestern Hospital. “The nurses are standing up against injustice, and it is important that everyone who can get out to the picket lines and show their support,” said Aby-Keirstead.

You can join the picket line from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day starting from now through Saturday, June 26 at Unity Hospital, Mercy Hospital, Abbott Northwestern, United Hospital, and Phillips Eye Institute.
