On Tuesday, February 14th, SEIU members Patty Hintz, Jamie Fielding and Marlene Baseman at Albert Lea Medical Center delivered a Valentine’s card to HR. The card was signed by 85% of the memberships and read,”Happy Valentine’s Day! We want to move forward and bargain our contract, but do not want our benefits to change from time to time after we bargain for them.”
Members at Albert Lea have been negotiating since October 2016 and are fighting for a fair contract that Management will follow.
The Ratification Vote for the tentative agreement will be held on:
IOUE 49: 2829 Anthony Lane South, MPLS, MN 55418
SEIU HCMN: 345 Randolph Ave., Suite 100, St. Paul, MN 55102
HealthPartners bargaining continued this week, and a tentative agreement was reached after 25+ hours of negotiations on our final day. Watch the latest update from bargaining team member, Jean Pfarr for more info.
Contract negotiation updates will be available online on our Facebook page, YouTube channel and right here on the SEIU Healthcare Minnesota Website.
