Essentia and MNA nurses in Moose Lake reach tentative agreement

Essentia Health sent out a statement saying they are pleased to have reached a tentative agreement with their MNA-represented nurses in Moose Lake.

It went on to say, “We’re proud to have some of the finest nurses in the country, and we appreciate their dedication to providing the highest level of patient care in support of Essentia’s mission to make a healthy difference in people’s lives.”

As part of this tentative agreement, the MNA negotiating committee has agreed to recommend ratification and will hold a ratification vote on or before Dec. 9.

The tentative agreement also indicates that the Moose Lake location will not participate in a strike authorization vote on Nov. 30.

15,000 nurses across the Twin Ports and Twin Cities are scheduled to take that vote.
