MINNEAPOLIS-- About 4,800 nurses at five Minneapolis-area hospitals have begun a week long strike over a contract impasse. Members of the Minnesota Nurses Association members began striking this morning at hospitals operated by Allina Health. The main dispute is over Allina's effort to switch union nurses to the same health insurance plans as more than 30,000 other Allina employees and their family members, which carry lower monthly premiums but higher out-of-pocket costs.
