Moose Lake nurses agree

Essentia Health announced Monday that it had reached a tentative agreement with union nurses in Moose Lake.

“Both parties worked hard at the bargaining table in pursuit of a contract that benefits our nurses, our organization and — most importantly — our patients,” an Essentia Health news release said.

The Minnesota Nurses Association negotiating committee agreed to recommend ratification and will hold a ratification vote on or before Dec. 9. The tentative agreement also meant that the Moose Lake location would not participate in a strike authorization vote in Duluth and at other Essentia properties.
