Hundreds of nurses from Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital, St, Louis Park, MN joined the forecast 12,000 nurses walking out of Twin Cities hospitals at 7:00 AM, Thursday June 10, 2010. The enthusiastic nurses were joined by John Benson, State Representative, HD 43B and supported with lots of car honks. The strike is to continue until 7:00 AM, Friday.
This action was taken after months of stalled negotiation. Hospitals were notified several weeks ago so replacement staff had been brought into the Twin Cities area.
