On December 7th, SEIU Healthcare Minnesota filed a 10-day notice of intent to hold an Unfair Labor Practice (ULP) strike at Mayo Albert Lea Hospital. The 1-day strike is set for Tuesday, December 19th.
The notice came as skilled maintenance workers who have been without a contract for over two years voted to join with certified nursing assistants (CNAs), housekeepers, sterile processing and other service workers who had authorized a 1-day strike in late November.
Ryan Timlin will be the new president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1005 effective Jan. 1. The election comes as the union prepares for a possible strike during February's Super Bowl in Minneapolis.
Mayo Albert Lea service workers who are members of SEIU Healthcare Minnesota have voted overwhelmingly to authorize a one-day strike if Mayo continues to refuse to bargain in good faith, the union said.
