Last week, the bargaining team for the Twin City Hospital multi-employer contract (including Fairview Riverside, Southdale, St. John’s, Children’s Minneapolis and St. Paul, North Memorial and Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital) made additional progress on non-economic items. The Union team also provided our economic proposals to management for the first time (after 6 days of work on non-economic issues). The Union team continues to make steady progress but needed more time beyond contract expiration to keep bargaining. As a result the parties agreed to extend the contract for another month through the end of March. For more details click here.
