A tentative deal has been reached between union workers and Mayo Clinic Health System Albert Lea.
SEIU Healthcare Minnesota says recent negotiations with Mayo have been a success and workers who’ve been without a contract for nearly two years will soon get one
The union says a majority of SEIU members voted to approve the new plan Monday after a deal was reached earlier this month.
The group previously filed complaints with the National Labor Relations Board, claiming that Mayo illegally locked dozens of employees out over Christmas following a December strike. Hospital officials say the deal won’t be finalized until the NLRB confirms that those union complaints have been dropped, as agreed upon in this new deal.
SEIU reports the new plan keeps holiday pay while providing pay increases for up to ten percent over the three years of the contract, with added benefits and protections for workers who may move to the Austin location.
